You probably need to give more details. If it's a replacement drive, did you reinstall Windows from a CD? Did you copy from the original hd? It's simple enough to remove the two cables from the original drive, physically remove and replace the drive, and hook up the new drive. But then you'd need to boot to a Windows CD in the CD/DVD player to format and install Windows, if that's what you're attempting to do.

There's possibly a recovery partition on the old drive )or a recovery CD). If so, you'd connect the new drive to a second power cable, and data cable (which might not be included in the tower) :

Either your monitor or video card is bad. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original monitor and does not work, then the Video Card inside the computer is bad.

For a PC to operate it needs an operating system that it can load into memory (RAM) from a hard disk drive or from a DVD disk drive.

Installing stuff on PCs is easy, just Google what you need to know and keep t it...

There should be a jumper on the motherboard OR a setting in the motherboard bios. Try looking through the bios menus first... If there isn't a way to disable, get the model of the main board and look at the jumper diagrams online.
