Just check the hard disk cable that it is fitted properly in the hard disk and in the motherboard also.
OR
You buy another cable for hard disk which is called 80 conductor cable.

Screen gets black


Typically the graphics card went out. Other possibilities include, loose monitor cable or short in the cable, or incorrect graphics driver installed or missing, or monitor is shot (least possible). Things to look for: When booting up are you able to see words in the monitor or is there a series of non-regular error code beeps? If beeps then most likely your graphics card is either loose or fried, or incompatible. If you it works fine, but the light on the monitor turns orange and screen goes black, then it's most likely a loose monitor data cable or there is a short in the cable, or monitor's power cable is loose. Then check both connections, power and data on the monitor, and also where it hooks to the computer make sure it's screwed in snug.

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.
