Possible causes of this error may include the following:
- Hard disk damage
- General hardware configuration problems with the BIOS, the memory, the hard disk, or with other devices
- Incompatible device driver or software

In your case, because it happens with many programs, you should check your hard disk and RAM first.
Open StartMenu > Run type cmd In the command prompt type : chkdsk /f c: and pres Enter. If asked say yes by pressing Y followed by Enter key. Do this for all your hard disk partitions like D: E: etc. When all is done restart your computer.

For RAM modules, take them out and clean the contacts and reseat them back firmly. Check your RAM using memtest (http://www.memtest.org/)

If these dont work, you may have to look at incompatible drivers and software. Easy solution would be to use System Restore in that case.

If you have done all, then problem lies in the hard disk. It may have suffered some physical damage. If you have hard disk manufacturer's diagnosis utility, please run it. Most hard disk manufacturers put such utilities online on their websites.

I have a number of Samsung drives, the utility is at http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd...ort_Shdiag.html

They have redesigned the website and the new design doesn't make it easy to find the diagnostic.

I had to do a Google, using "Samsung hard drive diagnostic" to access it, where it was never so difficult before.

Your drive is listed :thumbsup:.

I've always gone with the floppy versions.

Those error messages you quote...don't even apply to the situations.

STOP error messages generally don't cite driver actions when format/reinstall is involved...there are no drivers because there is no O/S.

Booting from an XP CD...has nothing to do with XP boot files for an existing install.

yes i do realise this. i can only tell you what i see. what would you like me to do, take photos when ever it craps itself?
after i finished with your programme which by the way didnt work cause of my sick puter it cam up with the system32 thing. sowent to reinstall windows and thats when i got the blue screen error message or whatever you wanna call it.
like i said i can only tell you what i see.
everything i try seems to make the puter bleep itsself with sometimes different error messages.
also this is not the first time iv tried to reinstall windows on this machine and have had that kind of error message while loading files off the disk or formatting or doin the actual reinstall.
so far all iv done on my end is gone through a process of elimination.
cleand the contacts on the ram.
even chucked in mygrathics card from my other pc which is the same so there would be 256mb dedicated straight towindows instead of being split between windows and the onboard grathics.
all that did was make windows work a little more faster.
when i run malwarebytes it dosent even get quarter way through befor the blue screen com,es up and here goes another error meesage.
when i went to reinstall windows the first time i actually had to remove the hdd and place it in my other pc to get a format and reinstall.
so you tell me, whats so unusal about a error messeage coming up where it shoudnt possiblybe??
remember i already no that error message shoudnt be there lol.

Well...a failing CMOS battery and RAM problems (not together, individuall)...I have seen each result in erroneous error messages on my systems.

I would suppose that a failing or weak power supply might.

I would suppose that a bad motherboard might.
