Hey all, I have a major problem. I recently bought a Western Digital 200GB SATA HD a few months ago. It seems to work fine, but every 2 or 3 weeks my system would go into this endless rebooting loop when it tries to start up Winxp. The reboot happens during the windows xp startup screen with the blue squares scrolling from left to right under the Windows XP logo. Iam sure I installed it properly since I used the Motherboard drivers and press F6 before the windows xp installation begins. Every 2 or 3 weeks all of sudden it stops loading winxp and starts rebooting. I also notice that everytime I boot up, Windows XP goes through a chkdsk for some reason all the time.

My PC was PERFECT before I switched to the SATA HD, so Iam pretty sure its the SATA HD doing this.... Iam also using NTFS, Iam not sure if thats the right one to use..

Most of the time when this happens I get pissed off, and end up deleting the partition and reformating/reinstalling winXP and then it happens again after 2 weeks or so. I just dont get whats wrong.

ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRIECIATED!!!

Nothing beside the HD Upgrade from 120GB ATA to 200GB SATA...

Iam pretty sure its the HD doing all this, since it started happening after I installed winxp on it..

Just happened again yestruday, when I came back from work, turn on the PC and the PC just freezes on the winxp LOGO screen. Iam was so ******* pissed off....

It wont even let me repair it or format the partition...

So I ended up Delete ALL PARTITIONS and re-partition my whole HD again... I made a big sacrifice and lost all my stuff on the HD, just so that this PC doesnt give me any more problems..
