Just put in a new hard drive, now I cannot enter the bios in order to try to reload windows 2000. Screen just goes blank with white lines shortly after the mem test in the beginning of things. Any and all advice greatly appreciated!

Make sure you didn't knock anything loose during upgrade. Try disconnecting hard drive--any change?

Thanks, apparently, I had things jumpered wrong, after replacing the wrong drive. Thanks for the response. I set the drive up as master on its own channel and everything went fine. Elementary mistake.
