Your hard disk scrambled a file when the power dropped. Your story is a bit confusing, "you bought a used hard drive with the system loaded on it..." and "then we blew a fuse...." Basically you can not get a used hard drive with the system (by which I assume you mean the operating system, like Windows XP) and RE-Use it on ANY another PC "as-is"..... You must reload Windows XP, from scratch, so that it will be configured to match the specific hardware in the computer you are trying to get running.... If you have the Windows XP CD for your computer, you can reload the operating system on your PC onto this new (old used) hard drive. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
