Re: hard drive install
Is your system still power ? if the system is working properly before u connect the new HDD. Be sure that your system or motherboard support the new HHD. if yes then, newly installed HDD sharing one cable specifically on IDE cable , the second drive should be in slave and the first one is master.( verify installation summary of the Hard drive label ) if you sure about these, then maybe memory is lessened try to fixed it by removing and installing. if not solved then update me about your system.

Is it set to run disc or hard drive 1st?
if reinstalling windows it needs to boot up from cd drive 1st and this will automatic copy to new garden drive, after that change bios to boot up from hard drive.
You need to start windows in the safe mode, press F8 at boot up. Remove al the drivers that you've installed on you previous computer system, usualy this is is a conflict between wrong drivers and your hardware. If you can't remove the old drivers, reinstall Windows XP, do a clean install by booting your computer up with the Windows xp cdrom, from the Windows XP cdrom you're also able to repartionate your hard drive. First remove the old partition(s) en make a new one, the setup does then format your harddrive, after that you're ready to install windows xp on the new partition.
in most new cases there are extra slots for extra hard drives, but as long as the ide or sata is hooked up it should work, and you can buy hardware and rig up something ,ive tested many hard drives without hooking up hardware,
the components on the hard drive should not touch other metal
you can easily buy a new HDD at buy.com or newegg.com but checking the old one and installing the new one are a little harder. The drive is simply a small SATA drive and can be plugged into any newer PC. Techs use a USB adapter, but if you know something about it, installing a drive isn't that hard. You may need to enable in in BIOS though.
Installing a new one is a simple matter, but then you have to install windows, which means you'll have to boot from the CD [and HAVE a windows install CD].
Try to put your harddrive, check on the screen if it can detect the harddrive. If it says there that ntldr is missing or if it is looking for an operating system try to install a new operating system. It like reformatting your PC.
