Hiya,

I had recently installed a graphics card. It was working just fine until the game i was playing turned all black but i could still hear the sound and all, so i just decided to restart my comp.I have tried F8 and all the modes in safe mode.When windows xp is loading a blue screen flickers and makes my comp restart. I wouldnt mind loosing all my files through reinstalling windows but it gets stuck when im trying to repair it or reinstall

My comp's specs are:

AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor 3800+
Cpu speed: 2000MhZ
Cache ram: 512KBx2

HP Pavilion A1600n

hope this helps,the blue screen i get is : Stop:(0x00000024)
(0x00190203,0x864CFAB8,0xC0000102,0x00000000)

Help would be appreciated. Thanks

Firstly make sure all your Hp drivers are up to date: HP Drivers if it ever gets to Windows again.

But if you don't mind re-installing
Then put the Windows disc in (or use the System Recovery, if it has that startup prompt)
Boot from CD
And remove the Partition
And then allow Windows to continue installing

Ok well when i go to system recovery, it takes my to some HP screen and then it shows like a desktop background or something and it shows my cursor but nothing appears.

So should i try to put in the disc to boot from it ? or is there a way to repair that?

Thanks
