Hi, i have just aquired my new pc. At first i noticed that when i turn the pc on, it does nothing just the HDD light on. I have to reset the pc before it can load up to BIOS.

Then, I installed Windows XP fine until i installed the motherboard drives using the CD. After that it kept on repeatedly resetting itself after the XP loadup screen. After some resets it loads up into windows telling me its recovered from a Serious error. Then starting resetting itself again.

So I tried a fresh install of XP, now it wont even read from the CD anymore just says it cant read a certain file. So i tried to install windows 2000 instead and the same problem happened.

So i tried putting a new harddrive in and it says that it cannot format as it is damaged.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Is this a new build?
List the temps as reported in bios.
