Need help to install OS in my PC

As i was working on my PC, any error occurred instantly and My PC is crashed now.

I tried many time to boot, but nothing. I have 3 CDs of operating system and I have every CD for installing the OS in my Pc, but no one is completing the setup, I have tried more cds, but same. After some installation process, that installation stopped automatically.

Please help me out what should i do, is there any prb in hard disk, or i have to remove jumper or cmos.

What should I do? so that I can install OS in my PC, please help me out.

what is your os?
what is last error message?

check your RAM. bad ram will stop pc to operate even installing new OS.

tips: disassemble your all hardware and reassemble it back. for old computer some of the part may getting loose even IDE cable

as i said above this could be happen because of hardware error, but just to double check, make sure your disc is not scratched and the os is not corrupted especially when you burn copies from original cd.

get a fresh copy of XP, I recommend Service Pack 2 not Service pack 3, Service pack 3 has many bug compare to Service Pack 2, check also your hardware, start on the memory, next is your video card, last is your HDD.

also observe for beep sound, if you hear long beeb it might be your Video card.

if you hear a short beep it might be your memory.

I am also facing the prb about it and asking the suggestions from the members, as I have tried also xp service pack 2 instead of three, fresh cd's for my pc, RAM attach and detach everything, but nothing happening.

What should i do?

That happened to me a few years back and I never figured out the cause. Sorry to be the one to say that.

If you have another compatible computer you can try swapping parts into it one by one to test the various parts. By doing that I narrowed it down to something on the main board. At that point I just built a new one.

Basic trouble shooting guide, always check on cable's connection or slot connection, such as RAM, IDE cable and other cables and devices on your computer.

Have you tried formating your hard drive before attempting to install XP?

PC starts booting means
RAM working
processor working
video card is also fine when it monitor displaying
i think it is stopping installation due to processor over heat-up
check if your supply fan and processor fans are working when it stop just unplug and check if processor heat-up more then normal
check heat-sing is adjusted fit on processor also change RAM slot
Also check CPU power lead is not lose and not sparking in electric board

This could very well be a hardware issue your ram has failed or your hard disk try and run hardware diagnostics to see if you could identify the problem

I am also having the same problem. I got 2 Hard disks in my pc.
Earlier my system hung very often. So i decided to re install windows. I formatted the hard disk. But when i try to install os it hangs. only blue screen is coming. The error is showing that may be some hardware complaint is there.

Is jumper settings are important when installing os ? Is it necessary to install os on hard disc which is set as master ?

Actually it's nothing happening as sharing again, how to boot up bios setting and what feature I have to change in bios. May be there a problem of HDD, as in this situation I can't check for bad sectors or any problem. I am stuck and think now to hire an hardware engineer.

I have experienced that kind of error on my pc before (ram or memory module not working properly), I thought the cd installer is the main culprit. Do you hear a clicking sound inside your pc?

get a copy of Knoppix Linux, Knoppix Linux designed to be run directly from a CD / DVD (Live CD) and a USB key (Live USB) it is good for PC diagnostic, Knoppix Linux does'nt need to be install on HDD, while Knoppix Linux is booting, It will run A self diagnostic on your hardware, you will See all your hardware preference while it's booting from there, now you have a hint on how to Isolate the trouble, next is after it is completely Reboots on his window try to access your HDD, it will be on your desktop, (parallel ATA) hda1, hda2 and hdan+1 if you have multi partition system, (SATA) sda1, sda2, and sdan+1 for SATA multi partition. if you can see all your file on the HDD the HDD is good.
