I was given a Dell Dimention 8400 and when I turn it on I only get a flashing curser. I have the Windows XP (no SP) OEM disk from my gateway computer. And yes the broken computer has the MS sticker for win xp. My guess is the HD is bad (SATA) how do I: 1. Verify what the problem is. 2. Install a new SATA HD with the XP (no SP) OEM disk? (I assume there are no drivers for an SATA HD)
