My friend Paul (Tech Support) formatted my 8 giger HD with all my apps and OS. After trying to reinstall XP on a clean HD, the software would shutdown after the hardware inspection. He swapped in my 2nd 80 giger HD (new for files, movies, music etc) and tried to install the OS on that....no luck either.
So, I we have concluded its hardware. I have requested an AMD system (motherboard, CPU and RAM) for less the $350+ labour. Looking at getting it back online again in the next few days. Tired of using the family compy and my internet gateway at work.
