I have an HP tower with windows XP installed on it. The problem started when I went to turn it on it would not load windows and would just keep rebooting. I bought a new hard drive thinking it was a hardware issue but I am still getting a stop error code. I have tried using a windows CD to install windows on the new hard drive as well as the old one. I tried accessing Windows Recovery Console but I get the stop error code before it even prompts me for the Recovery Console. I tried using a bootable iso. of the driver for the old hard drive and I was not successful. I am not able to put the drivers on a floppy drive since there is no floppy installed on the computer. I am at a loss here. I ran a smart check on the hard drive in BIOS and it came back fine. I also ran MemTest86 and came back with no errors. I was hoping someone could tell me what is causing this stop error. I am at my wits end with this computer.

If you have access to a windows CD you may be able to do a repair install of the OS. First you need to get into the bios and set the boot order to boot from the cdrom drive first.

On H-P computers to access the bios you press F1 or F2 while the computer is starting up.
