I had that problem, but it was because some of the XP files didn't install into my HD. I called microsoft.

I reckon you might have faulty RAM if it's still happening randomly after a reinstall... what exactly do the blue screens say? Or are they just blank blue screens, then an automatic restart?

It's mostly likely your RAM. You should run a memory test.

memtest86, run it for about 8 hours. Put it on a floppy disc and set the BIOS to boot off floppy first, then just pop it in there, and if you don't immediately get errors let it sit. If you do get errors immediately just see how many.

Thanks every one, the blue screen does say something but it flash up very fast then just resarts, i think it say something about a hardware error but it is so fast. i will try running a mem test! instead of putting it on a floppy could i put the program on a cd an boot off that?
