Has anyone got any further ideas? My computer was accidently switched off at the mains(aaarrrghh!) and the hard-drive died.I fitted another drive and everything seemed ok until I attempted to load windows ...I've tried win98&winxp but the computer hangs when trying to load either windows system. I've run diagnostic software and everything passes the tests ok. The drive partitions and formats ok .
I've also tried another video card and cd-drive in the system with no improvement.
any ideas? thanks in advance
