I'm having a problem and any advice or insight would be appreciated. I recently bought a 2 TB hardrive for storage and installed it on my windows XP Home computer. I installed it and had it formatted no problem, I even completed backing up all my files to the new drive. Now however, when I start XP it gets to the loading screen with the blue bar and hangs or freezes at the same place nearly every time. I say nearly every time because randomly it will finish loading sometimes, probably 1/20.
When I attempt to open the computer in safe mode it freezes at the sys.mup screen. To find out the problem I tried starting the computer with each of my sticks of ram individually to see if that was the problem, and it wasn't, and then I tried unplugging the new harddrive from the mobo. With only the main drive on, the computer started fine, with no problems. When i replugged the secondary harddive windows hangs again. Any thoughts?
