    Just replaced a bad power supply in my HP m1080n Media Center. Computer turned on and said windows failed to load. Gave me several options, Boot normally, boot in safe mode, boot from last working configuration, etc... Tried all of these and sometimes the comp shuts off as soon as I make a selection, and sometimes i get all the way to the XP boot screen and the loading bar starts to move before it craps out. Tried the recovery disk but no luck there either. Any ideas?

    I've also posted this question in the Hardware forum because I'm not sure if it's a hardware or a software problem.

    HP Media Center m1080n

    Replaced original Bestec 300W PSU with 300W HIPRO PSU ordered from HP.
