I fixed the CD drive and the Hard Drive, but I have a problem with installing XP.

before I got my XP CD to work, I received a blue screen. I took a photo of it.

This was the status of the CPU at the time (temp and etc)

What is wrong with my computer? did I not put everything together correctly, is my XP CD faulty? I am going to do some googling to try and figure out what is wrong.

try and reformat and install once more, and see if the Bsod happens again. It could have been an error with the installation.

Also, you could try a memory check. I know some linux live boot CDs have them onboard. Knoppix does.
