I doubt it said the hard drive is no good. It said something to indicate the hard drive is faulty but the exact words would be useful, save guessing.

Also you system specifications would help. Not all hard drives work on all computers.

"all i know about the pc i was told that some one tried puting more ram in and it quite".
That's a rather important piece of information to leave out of your first post, don't you think?

Alright, start over from the begining and tell us everything that happened that led up to the computer not working including what components were installed and why you needed to reload Windows.

And please be specific on what the error message said, that is very important.

You say it shut off when they put more RAM in it. Are you saying it was turned on when they installed the RAM? If so it could have fried something.

If you remove the new RAM and put it back to the way it was does it work?
