BSOD on Loading Windows XP CD

  1. Hey, I've recently bought a PC, well about june time. Here are the specs, sorry they're not written, this is easier for me.

    I have also attached my old LITE-ON DVD/CD-R drive. Running Windows XP Home edition.

    Since i started recieving problems a little over a month ago, my PC started freezing randomly, forcing me to re-boot, this becames more frequent as i try to do task usually, downloading.. sometimes just surfing, the freezes are completely random. I also on startup have the sign saying "System is loading in a fail-safe state, please check CMOS BIOS" or something similar, I looked aorund about this and the main answer i saw was reset my bios, but tbh i am like a bull in a china shop, so unpluging cells isnt my thing, im not sure if the freezing and fail safe state is related but I decided to format, upon loading the windows CD from re-boot, it gets to "Starting up Windows" and i get this BSOD. Sorry that it's fuzzy.

    Any ideas on how to fix anything? I would be really grateful. Thank you very much.

    Are you inserting a sata driver when windows asks for it? Its probably on your mobo (motherboard) disk and you need to press f2 if i remember correctly to insert a "3rd party raid driver" right at the beginning of the installation process.
