    My old sata hard-drive recently stopped working in a Dell laptop. It would constantly just keep restarting no matter what option i chose (i.e last known configuration, safe mode etc)

    I have a spare computer with a 10gb hardrive but you cant do much with that so replaced the 10gb hardrive with the dell hardrive, the plan was to completely reinstall windows using the dell hardrive.

    I connected the hardrive to the computer and changed the BIOS to run from cd (mesh computer recovery cd). After a couple of minutes of the Windows Setup screen the following message appeared:

    Windows XP Home Edition Setup

    the following list shows the existing partitions and unpartitioned space on this computer.

    Select an item in the listen
    1. to set up windows xp press enter
    2. to create a paritition in the unpartitioned space, press c
    3. to delete selected partitition press D.

    The box below showed that there are all 'unknown disks'

    I pressed enter to set up windows xp and the blue screen came up with the following error:

    Setupdd.sys: Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_Area

    Does anyone know any solutions to this?

    cheers guys and sorry for the long message :eek:
