I'm trying to format this old Dell Optiplex GX150. There have been some problems with xp on it before and when i boot from cd and then press enter to install xp pro the computer shuts down. Happened with windows 2000 too. wont get anywhere past that. Can't load the OS either. Would that mean that the hard drive is damaged? Thanks.

what happens when you turn it on without a cd? does it shutdown? When you turn it on, does it sound like the fans are running?
