I upgraded my hard drive to 320 GB. I try to install windows XP Professional. When it says "Press any key to boot from CD..." I do, but then it freezes on this screen and does nothing and allows nothing to be done. I am forced to shutdown. I have tried my windows XP CD on anther computer and I was able to open and view the CD fine. What could be the problem? I downloaded Ultimate Boot CD but I don't know how to use it. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Check your bios settings and make sure you have usb keybaord support enabled (Depending on your bios) and or get a PS2 keyboard ( I saw one at walmart today for 9 bucks) if thats not what your already using. You should then be able to enter into setup.
Good luck
