I've just purchased a new SATA 500gb hard drive which i have installed as per motherboard manual.When i boot up my pc with new hard drive connected it crashes before the windows xp splash screen,i get a quick glimps of a blue screen then it restarts the pc then the same again happens.Any ideas what this could be?

If this is the first one you've fitted to that PC then check the BIOS to make sure the disk is set to IDE rather than AHCI.
