Question about Computers & Internet
I suspect that this is NOT a HDD issue but a driver one. I suspect that you may have some driver conflict. Try booting in Safe Mode, if it does OK, then this proves it. you will then have to go through the drivers one by one until you find the bad one. Often it is the Video driver.
Try a reinstall with XP SP 2 FIRST, then upgrade as necessary, some PC's just don't play well with SP3 installs.
It MUST be a windows/driver/setting issue as you relate it works on linux.
