Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop ?

Ready for a brainbuster?

\015 I caught a trojan, or so I thought. pc first crashed a rebooted with all sorts of funky settings, antivirus is all messed up and not running, when i do scans, it immediately crashes again. trojan right? maybe not, i boot in safe mode and things run fine, antivirus is still messed up, wont run, wont uninstall, and certainly wont reinstall. Its been a year since my last sweep, so i decide to backup and zero the hdd. Backup akes a day and a half because the sytem crashes, even in safe mode, when it tries to transfer a large number of files or anything larger than 1.5gigs. I get everything backed up, hdd zeroed, now XP wont install. keeps giving me lists of files it cant install, different for every installation attempt. swap hard drives, no change, swap dvd drives, no change. XP disc is clean and scratch free. totally lost with a useless system here. please help!!\015

Answers :

Nothing of the sort can happen bye **** and ****
Check the cables between the devices. If youve changed out the HD and the DVD drive and still got an issue, the cables are most likely the culprit. If that doesnt help, change the jumper settings on your IDE drives (if master slave setup switch to cable select and vice versa).
