After my comp got Security Suite virus, I couldn't reinstall the XP operating sustem even after I replaced the harddrive and updated the bios. All I get is a blue screen suggesting I run chkdsk /F.

So you did that and what happened next? Did it complete a five stage process and report anything as fixed? Perhaps the new drive required specific SATA drivers. Try again to install and this time, hit Function 6 at the beginning of the Set process when prompted and when the installation pauses for you to put in a floppy disk with SATA drivers on it, just hit Enter. That will make XP look in its driver database for something that might run your disk.
