Default How can i fix my pc?

I put a new hard drive in and installed xp...

I got everything installed except the graphics drivers...

In the middle of installing the updated drivers my pc reboots...

How can i install/fix that?

I know my motherboard is dieing but i want to wait for some new techology unless I have to replace it now...

Was your old power supply toast or were you just tryng to fix the computer so thats why you bought a new one? I would try the old power supply just for trouble shooting sake and see what happens. The new one may be faulty. Did you get all the way through the windows install before it shut off? Whisc computer are you having trouble with 1 or 2? I've never got a bad MSI motherboard Its strange that its going bad so soon. Make sure if you have onboard Video that its shut off in your BIOS and you can try to set your BIOS to default.
