Question about Computers & Internet
I was going to trash old computer because it crashed caused by a download from the internet but I was talked into replacing the Hard drive and memory in it. Can you tell me the steps I need to take to do this? The computer is a T2778 Emachine. Maybe 4 years old and has Windows XP installed.
I have the computer up and running thanks to your help. I had trouble with the internet connection but figured out I had to replace the modem. I am typing this message from the computer. I am so glad I found this website. THANKS! I maybe using it again but right now I have no problems. Thanks again.

You need memory modules with maximum 1Gb DDR 333Mhz.
For HD you can select whatever you like.
Just replace memory modules, install your new hard drive (if it is IDE set as master).
After that get in to the BIOS (normally press DEL when boot the computer) and from boot order select as first the CD-DVD ROM and as second the Hard Disk.
Put at the CD Device the CDROM with the windowsXP and restart the computer.
The guide to install windows XP is very clear but if you have more questions post again.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
