    Sounds like your bios crashed . Or you have a bad chip on the board. Try removing everything from the computer accept. Memory and graphics card. See if you can get it to post. If not it my be your motherboard.

    Which os are you running ? You stated in a earlier post to Tmagic you were running Xp. You might want to post your full specs for the pc and what OS you are running. This way you may get more help

    Do you mean by crashing the whole computer shuts down. Or should I say powers off.

    It could be a virus. Have you tried reformatting the hardrive on another computer frist, Just format now do not try to install widows till you hook the harddrive back up to your computer. This might work. You post earlier the hard drive was good so give this a try

    I really tend to believe the mainboard is your problem if the hard drive works in another computer

    My guess is it is your main board . Sounds Like you may have a bad bios chip. With out be able to run test on the main board its hard to tell. I am kind out of ideals . Maybe someone hear can think of something.
