Stop: 0x0000000A (0XF7FD2F08, 0X000000002, 0X00000000, 0X804F8823

HP branded, but used a different XP Home install cause of PRIOR issues with instant reboots as well

XP Home SP2
HP Pavilion a630n
Motherboard: ASUS name: PTGD1-LA

Pent. 4 2.8Ghz
1.5 GB Ram (1GB Corsair Ram, 2 x 256meg RAM (Kingston) = (Originally only came with the 2 x 256meg RAM)
160 GB Seagate HD
256 Geforce 8600GTS (Originally a onboard video card)
PSU: [New] 480W Enermax with dual silent fan (Originally some crappy 320W No-Name Chinese one)

I had prior problems with this computer as it kept rebooting itself as well, without the blue screen though.
Now its happening again even though I have did a total format and have installed with a clean XP (non branded one).

The sudden blue screens don't have any pattern with them. Sometimes when I'm just trying to get to the login screen, it does it. Other times I'm trying to use firefox it does it. Sometimes when I am using WinRar it crashes. The pattern is totally not consistent

My assumptions is that it may be my RAM. But could drivers also be an issue?

Drivers could be the problem.

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any ! or X symbols.

Testing the RAM wouldn't be a bad idea also. You can do this with memtest86.

If the hard drive is SATA - HP has a different way of dealing with it than most others that I've seen. There's a setting in the BIOS that will set the mode for the SATA to be something like "IDE emulation". Could this be the issue?

Well 'usasma'
the hard drive is what came with the HP computer.. so I don't think it should be the problem

I also have not seen any ! or ? in the device managers, so I'm going to assume all of them is installed properly.
