Question about Computers & Internet
REFUSES TO BOOT. HANGS UP. PIN SETTINGS?
Are you replacing or adding?
If you are adding a hard drive as slave read the following if not skip down to "Replacing"
-Make sure your hdd jumpers are set to either slave or cs (Cable Select)
-Go into your BIOS (normally f2 when you turn on power) and make sure the old Hard Drive (The one with windows installed) is on the top or first to boot in the boot priority menu.
Now restart and see if it works
1. Find your Operating System install CD (Windows)
2. make sure power is off and plug in back is pulled when you are working on the inside of and computer
3. Replace Hard Drive making sure the jumper is set to either Master or CS (Cable Select)
4. Plug computer in and turn on power
5. Insert Windows/OS CD
6. If it doesnt detect the CD try restarting, if it still doesnt detect it go into the BIOS (normally f2 when you turn on power) and make sure the boot priority allows CD to go first.
7. Install windows
8. Install Drivers (if the installation disk didnt already)
This should solve your problem
Have a great Day.

First let the motherboard detect your hardisk, if the motherboard detects your hardisk, that means that your hardisk is just ok, then pull out the memory of your mobo and clean it out with a pencil eraser, then turn on your computer, if the problem still the same, pull out the processor also and clean it with a pencil eraser also, and insert back the processor to its proper place, then turn on your computer, if the problem is still the same, just repair or reformat your hardisk by using a windows installer, and make a backup of your files that are important. hope this help
