Hard drive problems
Alright guys, i wiped my hard drives on the computer before xmas as programs were crashing all the time, but no i cant load xp back on the. One drive is 160gb, the other 20gb.
When i put the xp disk in, it runs through the usual set up procedure, of wiping the drive/partition, then installs xp on the drive and reboots itself. But when it reboots, before it loads up properly, the message "Press A Key To Continue/Restart (cant remember which)" appears. It wont boot from the hard drive at all. If i try from the cd again, it just goes through the same procedure as above. The same goes on my smaller 20gb drive but it brings up a different error message.
Anyone got any ideas on how to fix the problem and what it is? I thought perhaps the hd had become corrupted or something, but surely not both of them?!?!
