Re: NEED HELP 4 first homemade computer!!!
When the computer first start up, do you see anything on the upper left corner of the screen? Those are usually the video card info, and memory count. I think that should be it if you have a new drive. I would just stick the Windows XP CD in there and do a reboot. Then the installation will start.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
