Hi there; I have a huge problem on my hands. I tried to install a Kodak printer on my Compaq Presario SR1901WM. The process froze the computer and so I restarted it. Well, XP would not come up; so then, I tried to be a big boy, and just format the hard drive and reinstall everything...big mistake! Now, regardless of whatever windows CD I use when I get to the point where I can format the drive the computer crashes. I cannot access repair, delete the partition, use recovery, access F8, or collect my freaking $200.00. lol Sorry, I have to laugh at this point. All I can do with the computer is access BIOS and make some changes in there. Now, I will say this, the motherboard does recognize the hard drive and RAM. The motherboard is the MSI MS-7093. It has a Phoenix V. 3.40 and Core V. 6.00PG. The CPU is an AMD Simpron 3200. Now, I have tried booting it with all the various RAM combinations. In other words, there are four RAM slots, and four RAM cards, and I have tried all the possible combinations of booting it with RAM 1 through 4. I have also flashed the bios with removing the battery. So, I am running out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

<<...when I get to the point where I can format the drive the computer crashes.>>

I believe a diagnostic of the hard drive is in order...before moving on to other suspects. The correct diagnostic should be available at the website of the hard drive manufacturer.
