|My friend just gave me a broken computer that needed new RAM and a PSU. I just got them today and put it in. |
Before I got the parts I thought I would get the hard drive ready so I put the hard drive into one of my working computers and installed a new copy of windows xp home.
The first screen I get shows the Graphics card model and how much ram it contains in the top left corner. Then it flashes to the normal screen that says phoenix technolegies and shows the Processor. THe next screen says
"press <ctrl S> or F4 to enter raid utility" neither of those two buttons work when that screen comes up anyways, but after a few seconds it flashes primary channel and secondary channel: not found. The screen after that comes and goes very quickly. It says PSI device listing and a bunch of other stuff that takes up the whole screen, but like I said its only up for like one second. Then the next and final screen to pop up is the start windows normally, safe mode, and all that stuff. I've tried clicking all of them and every time the screen goes black for 3 seconds a blue screen flashes for about 1 second and it reboots and repeats this entire process.
I think this has something to do with me getting the hard drive ready on the other computer. Any ideas? Should I reinstall xp on this computer?
