PLEASE HELP THIS computer idiot
First let me give you a background on my computer, 128mb of dram, 1.5 ghz, 37 gb memory on hard drive. Yeah it might suck, but I’m not that computer nerdy.
Anyways, I installed xp on my system about 2 years ago, the computer is 4 years ago, and this January I had to reformat it because of a virus, then I did not reformat until late april. And since then, I’ve probably reformatted once every 2 weeks, and now, every week.
Why do I reformat? Because I get the blue screen of death. That says “beginning physical dump of memory” and then eventually my xp becomes jacked up and my os wont load so I have to reformat.
It has gotten worse, now when I reformat, if I select ntfs file system, quick or regular after I delete the partition, while setup is copying files, I get the “blue screen of death of beginning physical dump of memory.” And if it passes the formatting, and goes to 2nd level installation, I eventually get another screen of death. Eventually, after 5 or 6 tries, xp will correctly install. And then after 3-4 days it will crash again.
Is it my hard drive, it is my memory? Could it be my xp pro cd?
