  1. The wifes computer died so I put the hard drive into my old system. On start up the OS gets to the windows login screen then a quick flash of a blue screen which disappears so quick I can't read what it says then the system reboots. I have tried to boot with the XP disc setting the bios to boot from DVD but it tells me there is no boot disc in the computer.
    As I was having no luck with that I decided to use a brand new hard drive, same issue again won;t even let me load a new OS onto the brand new hard drive.
