  1. Hello ,my Hp had a hard drive that was corrupted. So I took it out and I put into my other computer. On my other computer I had my Hp hard drive formated and cloned having the exacted information on my other computer. The hard drive is no longer corrupted but when I put it back in the Hp it freezes while loading up XP then restarts, giving me the same problem all over again. I think its the BIOS or driver because the hard drive was cloned to my other computer.
    Here the stats

    My HP has the ASUS P5LP-LE Mobo

    My good computer has the Intel Desktop board D925XCV

    Again my problem is that my Hp it freezes while loading up XP then restarts.
    Pleases help.

    Well if it's a Windows file corruption problem then you cloned the problem on the new drive. I would format and do a clean install of Windows on the HP with the new hard drive and use the old drive as a backup.
