Maybe not the correct place to put this as I can't even get Windows to load, but I will try anyway.
So here is what is going on. I have a laptop, and older P4 model that originally had WinXP on it. A friend gave it to me, said if I can fix it, I can keep it. The same error kept popping up for him, and now I am trying to reinstall windows, but before all the files even get copied off the disk, the same BSOD comes up. Windows is NOT INSTALLED. The error reads as follows:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT LESS_OR EQUAL
STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xF8988E6C, 0x00000002, 0x0000001, 0xF87D559C)
usbehci.sys - Address F87D559C base at F87D0000
I have thus far swapped RAM chips twice, swapped hard drives, changed the very few BIOS settings that are available, and nothing seems to change. Basically, no matter what, I get half way through the copy files portion of the install and BSOD pops. It is always the exact same codes. Any ideas? My only thought is bad MB.
