    I had a similar concern take place to a gadget I even have, it replaced into very stressful, I fastened the priority yet how I fastened this concern ought to not paintings on a computing device. Howie I hate to seem cynical yet that's my suggesting, pass to a pawn keep and purchase you a small high quality hand gun, take your computing device and a few beers out interior the rustic with a number of your chum's and purpose prepare. What you will spend on a sparkling stressful stress you are going to be able to desire to boot in some greater greenbacks and get a sparkling computing device. sorry, yet i presumed this might ease the soreness. reliable success.

    first try to compelte format HDD, then install a fresh winxp, if it does not solved and the blue screen apears repidly then certainly there is a problem with HDD, check if it gets any sound, or may be HDD has gotten bad sector, try HDD regenirator to repair the bad sector,

    Reformat your Hdd first..then reinstall xp. should work then..if no success there i would assume its prob a hardware error..prob ur hdd at that...but yes unlug all your extra usb toys...and such..u can add them back later...only thing pluged in should just be your keyboard and mouse when installing ur OS..
