Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Bought a new graphics card for my dell studio xps. The graphics card being installed is a XFX R6770. After installation I booted the computer up. Everything seemed fine except the resolution which I expected to have to change. After it installed the drivers I had to restart the pc. Since then it will not boot the OS. I get the error code 0F00:1332. From what I have found out most people say the hard drive needs to be replaced but I would like expert advice since I ran into this problem after the graphics card install. Thanks,

If you are installing a new hard drive, it is possible that you have not connected the cables correctly. Check if these are seated firmly in the corresponding pins.

hi! try this. reboot your cpu, then press the CMOS setup key (del), then select load default setting, then go to hard disk detection settings, select the LBA setup. I believe you know how to manipulate the CMOS setup configuration. if still doesn't work out, bring it to the service center near you and ask for assistance, Im sure they would love to help you. Have a nice day!

It seems that the installation CD that you have is not a bootable CD.. must be old one.
Please down load the boot disk for windows from http://www.bootdisk.com or follow the Microsoft article link given below:
Do not be intimidated by the article, although it looks big but there is very little that you need to do, rest of it is general instructions like where can you order a new CD from etc...
Simple solution is to borrow Bootable Windows XP installation disk and install it using the serial Key that has been given to you.
Please let me know if that helps and please rate the solution if it helped you.. it will not cost you anything but will make a difference for me :)
All the best and kindly let me know in case you need any further assistance.
