You are probably looking at

You are probably looking at a new HDD, or possibly malware. Without some more to go on in regards to error messages you were getting previously and now, we can only make wild guesses.

Hi Jimmy,

He first posted this issue in

He surely looked at Mark's suggestion to add more relevant info: XP, Core 2 Duo, Foxcon.
And now you're telling him to look even further, at a new hard disk or for malware. But I agree, it certainly needs looking into something.

Go onto Foxcon's web-site and,

onto its Support page(Drivers and Software), using the model #(kind)of that motherboard, find the compatibilities of Operating Systems for it.

If, it is a fairly new motherboard, newer than 2 years of age, it might not be compatible with Win. XP of any edition(upto M.C.E.2005). Showing a big bad red X for XP and two good looking green checks for both Vista and 7(any editions).

Worst that could have happened, the incompatibility fried that motherboard(extremely bad device drivers' programming can have this disgusting effect).

Good Luck!
