Check the disc for scratches, this could be a bad disc. However, I'm leaning towards another issue besides the hard drive being bad. Tell me what initially happened to make you buy a new hard drive. Hard drives aren't effected by the heat produced by the machine, so tell me what made you think it was heat that caused the hard drive failure.

Hi just installed Windows XP Pro on a Dell Dimension 3000 with 1 gig RAM. This machine was running W2000 pro with no problems. But after formatting the drive and installing Windows XP pro and all updates...


Well you definately tried everything I would have sudgested.
It sounds like the Hard drive is near the end of its life.
If you have only just installed windows, it may be worth getting a new drive, installing your OS on that, you could then use the other drive as extra storage.
I have had a few HD that started to fail. Maybe the format and installation pushed it over the edge. You could always run maxtors drive check tool to see if it can detect a problem.( maxtor is now seagate)

Have an Abit IS-10 motherboard and do not have video after replacing the heatsink and adding a newer HD running Xp-Pro SP3. How do I re-install the video driver as reccomended when I can't view anything...


I'm not sure what heatsink you are talking about. Changing the heatsink on a CPU does not affect the video, nor does adding a hard drive.
Now if you pulled out the old hard drive and replaced it with a hard drive on which XP Pro was installed, you need display drivers--but when you first start up the computer, display drives are generic and you can see the BIOS screen and you can also start Windows in safe mode.
If you have no video at all, even on startup, then you do, indeed have a problem. It could be with the monitor or it could be because you replaced the heat sink and did not seat the new one correctly or use heat sink compound. If this is the case, you probably just fried your
CPU and will have to replace it.

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP


Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...

It used to happen like this during the new installation.
goto BIOS setup and check that the HDD is correctely detected. check the size it reported. If its correct, give one more try. else the HDD firmware is corrupted and can be repaired.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
