HP pavilion a400n PC not booting....

I just replaced the hard drive in my HP Pavilion a400n PC, it worked all fine and everything, installed Win7 perfectly, but after a couple of restarts, it stopped booting. I reinstalled Win7, and even switched hard drives back to no avail. It gets past the HP Bios screen, but no further, I get a screen with all these weird symbols and colors....Can someone help?

1. Did you you run the Win 7 simulation prior to upgrading to Win 7? 2. How much RAM does your PC have? I just checked your specifications http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&lang=en&cc=us&product=391284&dlc=en&docname=c00057188
Your computer takes a max of 1GB RAM and the minimum required for Windows 7 is 2 GB. This PC is not fit for Win 7. Sorry.

yes the 2 computers are different. Different processors, different memory,different graphics card.To get your ide drive from your hp pavilion a510n to work in your hp pavilion a1330n, you will have to completely re-load the drive when it is installed in the hp pavilion 1330n. Then it will work fine, but you will not be able to use that drive in your hp pavilion a510n. because you will have the same problem but in reverse.

It could also be the conncetion came loose, which can happen with IDE hard drives if the laptop gets moved around a lot. Remove the hard drive and take it to an electronics store to have it tested, or if you have a friend with an external enclosure (2.5" IDE interface, they cost between$10-20) you can hook it up to another computer via the USB port
