i am building a new computer, yesterday i got it to boot up until bios mode but it woulnd't load windows it sadi it was checking the system config then would freeze. i took the hard drive out to check if there was a problem with it, and when i but it back in the computer will not even show a picture. and on top of that my old computer is now having issues. however when i checked the hard drive everything was working fine.

the only possible things i can think it might be are the cpu or the motherboard

any ideas???

A intel D101GGCL computer i was building was showing only the intel bios screen until i replaced the HD i was trying to use with another one. As soon as i replaced the drive windows booted up from the cdrom drive as i had left the cd in the drive when changing the HD out. I could'nt figure it out but i did install the same drive on another computer and had to fdisk and format it again.

I had a older intel 865 chipset MB, that was a replacement for a dead one, that was bad itself, even tho i once got into the bios and it later started trying to install windows. I finally had to RMA the board back for a second replacement board.
