Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop ?

Upgraded Hard drive fron 40 gig to 250 gig, used 250 before as main hard drie, been using as external drive.Formatted it and put in computer, Windows will install all files but not complete set up. Wiped disc with Disc Wipe Pro 4, then reformatted, same results. The copy of Windows is good, I installed it on another pc 2 days ago, I think it's the HD. Any help would be appreciated.
