My pc had been resetting itself for sometime but it didn't always do it. then one night it started turning itself off and came up with a false error message as you couldn't press the X and it said
''windows is shutting down any unsaved data may be deleted''
now that may not sound fake but the normal message we get says the same but also has an end now box to close immediately and a cancel box.
And so now we bought a new hardrive as my bro thought it may have been my hardrive that had a virus on it ,my bro also added something similar to this -->> 'A pc can only stand so many volts going through it and if u go on something to strong for it then it will reset preventing it from exploding'.
Anyway i got a new hardrive and the computer doesn't recognise
it being there it only recognise's the old one so we tried installing the new windows xp home edition cd, it was placed in the drive but it comes up with this below :
