need help with HD boot
Hokay, here's the story:
I was pulling the power cord out of my video card a couple weeks ago and I broke off some module that was loosely connected to the board. When I booted the pc back up, I just got weird colors, so I went and got a new video card.
Now when I start my computer up, between the motherboard logo screen and where the windows xp screen should be, I get a black screen and then an error message saying my windows system file is missing or corrupt. It tells me to boot from my xp disk and try a repair installation, but when I try that and get into the repair (right after I select the drive that I want to repair) I get a blue screen with white lettering and everything freezes up.
I tried 2 different video cards just to make sure that the new one wasn't causing the problem, and I also stuck in a different hard drive with a fresh xp install on it, which booted fine.
Can anyone out there help me out at all? I'd really appreciate it.
