I just finished repairing a desktop computer that I built in 2003. Replaced the memory and power supply, both of which were faulty. It is based upon an Intel 865PE (socket 478) motherboard (MSI 865 PE Neo 2 FIS2R). The computer is working, but it has had it's ups and downs as far as installing Vista a couple of years ago and then going back to XP Pro. It's slowed down a lot, and I felt it was time to do a clean installation of the operating system. My original Windows XP Pro disc is from prior to service pack 2, and I am currently running service pack 3. When I try to do the installation by booting from the XP Pro disc, it gets to a point where it says Windows is starting, then I get a blue screen. This happened 5 times in a row, and I have subsequently removed more and more peripherals each time, but still I'm getting blue screens. All that is attached now is the mouse and keyboard. Initially I got the following error codes:
Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x7242414E, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF734F4BE)
USBPORT.SYS - Address F734F4BE base at F7344000, DadeStamp 3d6ddc31
After I got down to just the keyboard and mouse, the error message read:
STOP: (0x000000D1 (0x00000000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I rebooted into Windows normally after removing the CD and it booted up fine.
I may have to stick with a slow computer.
Thanks for any help.
