please help!

After logging on, my sysytem always hangs up or freezing before I start any program and aplication. Several system restore atempts can't help. My problem begins when my brother handed me a second hand hard disk and I replced the old one (not yet defective) with that one. I started to format it as preparation to new OS installation only to find out that is defective. An error messages appears indicating that the device is totally defective. So I decided to use again the old one that is working and everything seems fine but after a few minutes after logging on, my system always freeze. Restarting my computer doesn't help. I m using a pentium 4 computer with 512 Mb of Ram and 40 GB hard disk space. thank you. any help shall be greatly appreciated.

Specifics of error messages...are always more useful than the Cliffnotes versions some users supply.

As for your system freezing, you might want to try using Event Viewer to get clues about why it's freezing.
