Question about HP Pavilion a310n PC Desktop
I have an old HP Pavilion a310n PC Desktop which I recently attempted to install Ubuntu Linux on. An error occurred when installing the OS that stated that it could not copy files due to the hard disk being faulty or too hot.(It wasn't too hot, i had just turned it on, well ventilated area, all that jazz.) Should i buy a new hard disk or scrap the idea and buy a newer computer?
Thats odd if you cant load linux i would be buying something new whether you go for a new computer or hard drive depends on your financial situation personally would go for new computer nothing feels better than a new computer

Files copy errors during the XP installation process are often an indication of BAD RAM.
If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

You said HP told you to do this. I would call them, ask for a supervisor and relate your story. Branding a hard drive takes software not commonly available to customers.

You might be able to use a drive cloning program such as HD Clone from Miray to clone everything to a new drive then do the recovery.

obtain the driver from cd/dvd that was included as you purchased your desktop and try to check if the driver supports with the operating system you are using now. for example the driver available in your cd/dvd is only for windows xp and your operating system you are using now is windows vista of course driver not installed. try to download from internet the driver that are suite to your unit model and current operating system this can fixed your problem or else downgrade your os tha can support the driver that are available from your cd/dvd.
