When I am booting my install of XP I get a blue screen with a hive file missing error. I am blaming it myself on faulty parts maybe the RAM or CPU. Recently it has been constantly crashing even just a few hours after a reformat and fresh install of windows xp. Does anyone have any ideas for me?

Thank you.

Can you post the exact contents of the error message you reference?

FWIW: The "hive"refers to the XP registry, not RAM or CPU.
