Reinstalling Windows Problem

By whakoworld
Sep 24, 2008
  1. Right heres the problem - I've been trying to reinstall windows xp sp2 on my SATA drive for the last 2 days and its not working. It either stops at 34 minutes or it will go past that and to about 15 minutes then ill get a blue screen of death. I'm a bit stumped because i've done this before so i dont know what i've done differently - except that was a PATA drive. It's driving me nuts so any thoughts or advice anybody could give me would be greatly appreciated!

    Reset CMOS settings to default
    And possibly run Memtest on your Ram
