another thing to try is to wipe the drive clean...meaning writing all 0's to the drive. Here is a freebie that will do that. Killdisk will remove everything so if you have a recovery partition on the drive, then I would not recommend using killdisk on it

Yes the kill program will run, though not sure why you need it

 

When you say install disk do you mean a factory bundle or just an os disk

like xp or vista, and is it a copy ?

I wont get into the schematics of using the same os on two different computers.

 

I assume this is a single hard drive

 

If you know how to open the bios do so and set the auto find for your hard drive.

 

Make sure the cd/dvd is the first thing to start up at boot

 

With the drive unplugged both power and ide start the machine wait a minute shut down install the drive and restart with the install disk in the drive

I suspect bad RAM.

It is possible, but I am afraid that I must say that Adamsapple has a point.

A little scratch can care for problems, but dust or finger prints too.

Take care that the adapter is correct connected at the drive and you must care for the jumper on the right position.

I am sorry for these words, but in my mind there was a thought, maybe is it possible that the adapter or jumper of the drive is not correct connected.

My thought was, it is weird that when you will try install the os and than stucked.

My suggetion for you is: Check the cable and jumper setting.

For the correct jumper setting, see your old harddisk or your userguide what you did get of the factory, then you bought the pc.

These os disks that you are using, are the manufactures recovery disks, like they have Dell or HP printed on them or are the the windows os disks with the holograms printed on them?
