    When the system crashes does it give Blue Screens and are there error codes along with listed drivers? If so please give us both.

    First off, you really should install XP SP3 - SP2 is so out of date (and no longer comopatible with a lot of newer software).

    If you still cannot install other software properly I would suspect a problem with your CD/DVD - 2 years life for a CD is not surprising these days, unfortunately. You could try copying the complete install CD to a hard disk directory and running the install from there. You might find even a simple copy does not work any more.

    Cannot Install Programs

    Make sure you are an Administrator. Some programs tell you that you must be one, but others may not.
