Take the hard drive back for another, it`s bad. The fact that it`s new does not mean it`s good.

Take it back, exchange it, reinstall windows on the new hard drive.

The reason i change hard drive was error during installation, new hard drive solved this problem, but i got freezes now. Why u think problem is hard drive? Its new from shop, never used before.

I think it`s the hard drive because it`s freezing, like I said, just because it`s new does not mean it`s good.

A fresh install on a properly working hard drive should never freeze up.

Did you spec this RAM you moved from the other PC? It needs to be the exact spec for the computer you moved it to.

Grecrocker might be right. YOu May need to spec the ram first. Also let me ask you: Do you use an old Sata cable or the one you use is new? I tell you this cause last week I had a problem like yours boot use to takes forever or sometimes was not successful. Every thing changed for good once I switched cables.

Well it should go without saying that all the other parts were working fine as all he did was add a new hard drive to the pc, and it is then that he started having issues.

You need to use a Sata3 cable & Sata3 port.
