Check that in messing about you haven't accidentally swapped over the plugs for them.

yes ok.it is in this machine that i swopped discs,that disc runs on xp. this runs on 2000p,would that make a prob,,im really new to this..,would the other disc allways run on any pc.
or is the motherboard,akin to the disc.the reason other disc isnt in use .the computer got knocked over..and wont lightup at all.so i took out drive.

A drive that has an OS set up to run on one motherboard will usually not run with another motherboard.

If it gets as far as you say though, that's not the problem at this point.

Is the keyboard/mouse on this system USB - and PS/2 on the other? Try swapping the keyboard and mouse from the other system.

I'm sorry but I can't understand what you're trying to tell me,

If you still need to, can you ask again but try and make things bit clearer.
