Strange behaviour with my dual core system

I have intel dual core system with 160gb seagate harddisk and 1 gb transcend ram capacity. recently i exchanged my harddisk as per warranty and after installing the same i tried to format the disk by entering windows XP cd in to my sony dvd writer. it seems to be going smooth, but when 9 minutes remain to end the whole process it just hanged up for more than 30 minutes and i have no option rather restarting the system by press-hold on the power off button for a while. next time when i tried to format the same i get a message like " press any key to boot from cd " and it seems to be running suddenly the whole thing hangs up and nothing works out. i tried the same lot of time and my goodness nothing worked out. i will be very much grateful if some one can sort out the problem for me. whether is it the problem of harddisk, ram or motherboard itself.

Make sure that the harddrive jumpers are set right.
Try setting BIOS to default, make sure it recognizes it..

Hello, you have to install again all the chipset which is the motherboard drivers, maybe your mouse is in USB type, so you have to install all the components needed for the mouse to locate.

Assuming the CPU you have is an E5300 2.6 duo 45nm then use an LGA 775 mobo.

For Win XP / Vista run at LEAST 2gb (Preferably 4GB) Ensure the mobo specs are compatible with the type of ram also.
