Hi! your PC may already infected by adware or spyware or possibly a PC virus. The cause is mostly from the internet surfing.
What I would do to correct the problem is update your spyware remover program and virus program. Once they are updated run the spyware program to scan your PC one at a time.
Hope this answer your question

I have a Toshiba Satellite p205 laptop, The problem Im having is the monitor is going blank at times. When I attach another monitor to it, it works fine. When not attached it will go to black screen...

Satellites are notorious for video hardware failure. I have one, and it does the same thing. Usually, when I move the lid during bootup, the screen comes on. But the problem lies in the video chip itself - the Satellites tend to overheat, causing the video chip to become unseated. Google it, you will see what I'm talking about. Type in, satellite p205 video problem or something. Good luck.

Changed my hard drive on my toshiba satalite p205 s6347

If its XP your trying to install, XP does not recognize SATA drives on its own (probably why the install disk does not see the drive), you will need to install third party drivers on the F6 prompt it gives during setup.
You need to download "Matrix Storage Manager", and format a floppy disk for the drivers to go on so a USB floppy drive is needed for this case for the AHCI/RAID drivers unless you know how to integrate them into the install CD itself.
You can download Matrix Storage Manager from Intel here >>>>>>>>>>>*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!

Make sure you read all the read me files pertaining to setting up the floppy disk for use with the F6 prompt as you will need to format the disk in the FAT file system.
Once you have the third party drivers installed the setup disk will recognize the SATA hard drive and allow you to install XP.
I would then recommend that you look into integrating the drivers into the install CD so you don't run into this problem again.

If you need anymore help or advice please post back.

Good luck.
