I am having a problem with my PC I have a Dell Dimension 4500 I am running window Xp I had a problem with my hard drive and I had to replace with a small 20 gig two partition hard drive. After I installed the hard drive the PC takes a long time and several different screen to boot. First I get the Dell Logo screen then after about 30 seconds I get a black screen with a message stating "Reboot and select boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device", I press Ctrl,Alt,Delete and it takes me back to the Dell logo screen for about another 30 seconds (seems longer) then to another black screen with a blinking cursor for about another 30 seconds. Then it finally goes to the Windows Xp start up screen. This all happened after I installed a diff Hard drive after the original bigger one died. As I stated before the hard drive now is small only 20 gigs with two partitions both divided equally but about 85% usage of first partiton C drive. I plan on buying another Hard drive as soon as the funds come. In the meanwhile is there anything I can do to restore the boot time and process to original?
Thank you in Advance!
