I was having a problem with my PC, I was getting a blue screen no matter what I did with the hard drive. I re-installed XP on the hard drive (using another PC), then I put the hard drive back in the original computer and thought everything should be fixed, but I was still getting the blue screen. So I thought it was a hardware problem so I just started to unplug all the cables from the motherboard to kinda reset everything. I unplugged the hard drive, the cd drive, dvd drive, floppy drive, power supply cables, and the CPU. I put everything back in their propper slots and turned the PC on. The PC turned on, I was able to see the indication lights but the screen wouldn't come on. I left the PC on for a while hoping it would warm up but nothing happend.

Can anyone help, please. Thanks a lot.

When you removed the CPU did you clean then reapply thermal paste, when you install XP on a different machine it wont work on any other machine uness it is completely identical to the one it was installed on. I think you have missed something when you put it back together again because if you did the problem should be the same.

Hey worrior thanks for the reply. I did not re-apply thermal paste, I didn't know about that. I have my PC and it doesn't use thermal past, the heatsink just sits on top of the. But I think I did plug everything in, I know there wasn't any other wires free after I plugged everything in. I'll take another look at it when I have time and I'll look into that thermal glue. Thanks.
