Not sure what forum this would go under but i figure it is a hard drive issue. Anyways here is my situation: Brand new computer specs are: intel 630 P4 / 3.0ghz / 800 FSB / L2 2mb cash 2 gigs of dual channal ddr2 ram (pc 4200 / 533 mhz) DVD Burner 16x8x16 250gig sata drive (in microsoft terms 203 gigs) 600 watt power supply (to much but i want it for future upgradability) radeon x800 I think that is it. I quadrouple checked everything is compatible, and it is becasue it turns on and as far as i know everything works. The only thing i can think of is wrong is that since the HD is not formatted maybe that is it, but putting in windows CD or boot disk doesn't work. I also though maybe that the DVD burner wasn't working, but i checked that and it is all plugged in and good to go. So i am going to ask a very hard question... What is wrong?!?!?! Can anyone please help me!
