Hard Drive/OS problem

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
When I started up my comp after I finally recieved my replacement mobo, the LanParty logo would appear but it would look kinda scratchy and wierd. Then, after that, it would go into a screen that looks like this. After trying out a number of IDE cables in both slots, with the DVD drive unplugged and the HDD unplugged at different intervals, I decided to try it out on this comp, and it started up normal, with no odd looking screens. Then this morning, I went to plug my hdd back in and it worked...tried to install Windows, and it formatted fine and copied all the files over fine, but when I retarted it, it gave me "Error Loading Operating System". So I went to try XP Pro, and the same results came up. I went to try the other hdd again, and the wierd screen came up again. I then plugged my hdd back in and the wierd screen came up AGAIN. Anyone else get this really annoying problem? I need this comp up and running by next week cause I have like 5 projects on the comp I gotta do.

When you say "might be broken again", what are you refering to? And I've tried reinstalling Windows XP like 10 times today.

I'm leaning more towards it being a broken hard drive cause I JUST got this mobo replaced like 2 days ago.

a hard drive wouldnt cause that kind of screen, but it would cause the error loading OS, so just try a new hard drive, if that isnt it, it might just be your video card.

Well, I got the error even before I loaded an OS to the HDD. I had also tried another HDD (the one on this computer), and at first it worked fine, but when I continued to test stuff and tried the one from this one again, the wierd screen showed up.
