I have a custom built PC that is running windows XP. The original problem I am suppose to be fixing is a disk read error prior to windows loading. I performed a check disk and did some other maintenance procedures. This seemed to work for a few days. Then I got the disk read error message back again. I decided to do a repair install of XP. This worked for 1 day and then problems started. I got a BSOD and it told me win32k.sys, kernal inpase error, 0X0000007A. After I got this BSOD and loaded back up windows took 10 min to load up. Now that I am in windows it is malfunctioning big time. It is running incredibly slow, the desktop icons disappear and come back again. I read that this error is typical of bad RAM, or a windows installation gone bad. I am going to run memtest to test the RAM. What else should I try to determine the problem. I cannot use the system like it is right now? Thanks for the help?
