New HD problem
So me and my roomy got a Dell dropped off to us, the problem with it was the HD was stolen. We went out and got a compatible HD for this Dell Deminsion 4300s. We hooked it up and put in out Dell recovery disk to reinstall Windows and we keep getting NTLDR is missing when we do not have the OS in. When we do put it in everytime we keep getting STOP 0x0000007B.
We've been reading these forums and the net. Tried reinstalling OS several times. Brand new HD, I don't know if we just got a bad HD, i've also been told this may be trying to tell me my RAM is bad. But I'm pretty sure this was a fully working PC until somebody stole the HD. We go into BOIS and it's reading the CPU, RAM, and HD, all the right numbers. So i need some help here, sitting tight right here. Thanks a bunch guys.
