I built a new computer from parts bought from different vendors. while I was at the start of installing windows xp on the hard drive, an error message appeared like an internal error in the system and suggesting me to remove the bad hardware or flash the bios etc. the next time i boot the computer, it FREEZES after few seconds of boot but it recognizes the io devices (cd r/w, disk drive, hard drive and zip drive). when it stops the disk drive and cd r/w drive lights are on.
I removed the hard drive connection and reboot it and it went through, i tried the hard drive on another computer and it worked. can somebody suggest something to fix this problem please? do i really need to flash the bios???
