Question about Computers & Internet
First the dvd drive failed to write or burn. Although device manger stated that dvd-ram was working discs did not regester in my computer.
I using ad- aware to check the HD, nothing was found, I restarted the laptop bit would not load windows, only showing the splash screen.
I tried a new dvd drive but no change. It looked like the HD had failed. I have tried another HD and tried to load Windows but no joy. I am at a loss what to do next. I bought this 'used' for my daughter, she has had it only 6 weeks. Hope you can help. Thanks!
Could be ram. Check it is not loose in socket (usually in compartment underneath). Take apart as much as possible and check for loose connections.
In what way would WIndows not install onto new hard disk?

Tips for a great answer:
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
check the cpu make sure it has dust free secure seating
also check your computer ram modules to make sure they are dust free and securely seated
hope this helps you
