install operating systemLocked
My old desktop (HP pavilion 4450) was crashed. I formatted the HD and install windows XP, the installation was OK till it rebooted the computer. Suppose after rebooting, it would finish up the installation. However the computer did not return to the windows and continuing the installation. After that I also tried to install windows 98, and same thing happened. My question is that: does this indicate the malfunction of CPU or matherboard. Also any further suggestion to fix it or I should throw the computer away.
Thanks for your suggestions.
