I'm sorry, Let me clarify. I did not connect the hard drive to my good hard drive (I'd be afraid to do so in case this other hard drive is infected with any nasties.) I simply just plugged the hard drive into the wall and connected the monitor it came with. So, basicly, it's running on its own, completely seperate.
I recall when it did this at work my boss said the "heck with it" and bought himself a new PC. I'm not even sure what kind of hard drive this one is. I do remember he had it custom built. Anyhow, I'm thinking it still has Windows XP on it because after it initially locked up on him (he couldn't get passed this BIOSTAR page) so he gave up on it. Now, I have it and am going to attempt to fix it but I feel useless by not getting past the BIOSTAR page.
I'm running this old PC by itself. After I verify it has no bugs in it then I will probably network it with my good home PC. I first want to be able to get passed the BIOSTAR page while running the PC as its own.
I hope I make sense...
Thanks for your Response
I do know when he had this problem that he took it to some computer tech and had several new items put in the hard drive including a new motherboard and increased memory among other things
As far as I'm aware nothing in this hard drive was uninstalled (ie. Windows XP) After the boss brought it back from the PC Tech it locked up (BIOSTAR SCREEN) and the boss just had enough and then bought a whole new PC and this one just sat in the office for like 6 months. I hope this info helps.
