I recently upgraded my computer with the following components:
i7 860 not overclocked
Huge cooler I forget the name of
I made sure everything was plugged in, I went into the BIOS and checked the CPU temp (it was 36*) and I even tried with my old hard drive that already had windows on it. Windows booted but then froze. I don't know what I've done wrong, please help.
when you have the new hard drive in the PC, when you start up the PC, have an operating system disk in the CD drive and it should ask you to hit any key to boot from CD, hit any key and then from there it will load up and eventually you can format the drive and load a fresh copy of the operating system on the drive and it should work.
