Bios reconizes new hd drive but xp pro does not


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

From what you are saying i would try installing on different hard drive, as it sounds like file corruption is playing a big part of your problems. If it isnt the hard drive then it may be one of your ram chips

Computer not booting up


What are the service lights doing on the back of the PC, two green two yellow, should be something to this affect,4 lights. Try your install again and see what the lights are doing when the error appears. Now take your service tag and go to dell.com.
and see what the error lights means.

Remember Xp is the only operating system that can be run on this pc.

If it was a hard drive problem,the last thing you do is try to install a OS, you get a hard drive diagnostic disk from dell, or get HDD regenerator
1.5.1, its free, it checks the hard drive for bad sectors and can repair them,so you can get your important info off of them, because if it had bad sectors, the problem will just come back. So its better to get a new one.

Dell dimension 4300s want to move hard drive to a new machine


You can move it but you have to remember that its going to have different hardware then your dell 4300 so it might require you to install drivers for the hardware that windows XP pro can't recognize. Keep that in mind so as long as you know where to go to get drivers for the hardware in that other machine, it won't be a problem.
