Answers :

Are the xp disks specific for that computer. The reason I ask is because when you changed the hardrive none of the components on your computer know what to do because you won't have any drivers.

Does your hard drive lights come on? Do you think the computer is trying to access your disk drive
It sound like you are on the right track. It seem so be a bios conflict. I had a motherboard that if set to boot form usb it would not look for any other device it the usb was not available. Double check your bios setting very carefully. It's easy to miss some something. If you have a "CMOS clear" option in your bios try that next. Can't hurt to start fresh. If that doesn't work let me know and I brainstrorm some more.

My laptop won't boot up properly. It was working fine a few minutes ago and I shut it down properly. Turned it back on (forgot to print something) and all that happens now is the Dell screan briefly flashes (the one with the F2 and F12 in the upper right hand corner of the screen), then it immediately goes to a black screen with just the curser blinking in the upper left hand corner. Anything can do to get it to boot up properly? - Thanks - Kathy
