Default Problem with formatting hard drive - Dell 2400

I have been working on a dell 2400, had a virus of some sort (friends pc). I have tried a few different hard drives, & all do about the same thing.... Get stuck somewhere in the windows xp setup on Kernel debugger or another loading screen.... I am thinking it might be a motherboard problem???

Have you tried a new installation CD?

Eighty8lx50, I agree with InfectionZero on this one. Before even trying a second hard drive (unless there is a known issue with the hardware) always check the install cd. Also, you can try a USB install if the optical drive is bad.
