    Hi i have tryed using a brand new hard drive, As soon as i press enter to install windows the screen goes top half black and bottom half blue then after a few seconds the whole screen goes blue, After a random amount off time its brings up a red bar like the restart bar but no writing then the system restarts and goes through the whole thing again, Im really good with computers but im stumped the only thing i can think off is that there is a fault with the mother board or maybe even the processor.

    Any further help would be great.

    Thanks alot

The problem here is you need to format and reload the operating system and all the software in order for the new motherboard to work with your old hard drive , because you cannot just simply put an old hard drive to a new motherboard without formatting the hard dirve and reloading all software, because a new motherboard needs a fressh installation and fresh operating systme on your hard drive so they will work together..

Hope that helps.........

    You can also try to reset the BIOS by doing the jumper settings to bring everyhting back to its defaul settings, and trying a different processor will also help so we can isol;ate if this is a problem with the motherboard or with the processor....

    Hope that helps..........

    a reformat might not be required if you don't want to lose data, but usually you need to reinstall windows. you can always use a live cd of linux like Ubuntu to back up your data without effecting the hard drive. The actual cause of your fault is incompatible drivers.

Check your Cooling Fan. Sounds a LOT like the fan is getting Sluggish and not cooling the Board Properly.
