recently i had a computer that the expansion slots had been messed up on the mother board so i took that computer and switched the cd-rom drive and cd burner drive and the hard drive and sound and video card and put it into another computer that had a motherboard and floppy but when i turn it on now an error message comes up that says hardware has been changed and it gives me a few options to start in safe mode or start normally or start with last known working settings i start normally but the screen goes blank and nothing happens. :thumbsup:

If the new computer has onboard video go to the BIOS and disable the onboard video. I had a simular problem. I had a IBM that need ed to entry setup to set changes. I did not have to change anything I just had to enter setup then reboot.
