Ok i got this blue screen:

Posted Image

I attempted to reformat windows xp professional. After the roboot while in the middle of downloading the drivers for the mice and keyboard the computer restarts or blue screen pops up again. I went to a store and bought a new hard drive thinking it would fix the problem but it didn't.

I want to know how to fix this problem without buying a whole new computer, if i could just replace one part of the computer that would be great. Thank you.

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I think in your post above you mentioned during the updates for mouse and keyboard...where are you getting these updates from?

Windows drivers are not always the best recommended drivers, specially the ones that might be offered during the installation of windows.

Sometimes it is better to skip those altogether and continue with the installation.

Then install any drivers you need directly from your hardware vendor, in most cases however, sticking with the generic drivers works quite well.

could you tell your computer specs???
and does your computer could boot to desktop (normal or safe mode)???

nvatabus.sys is one file of nvidia driver...
if you could boot to desktop...please locate what device driver that use nvatabus.sys??? if you could find it...please uninstall that driver and install a new driver...

I'd try uninstalling...then reinstalling...the chipset drivers.

I'd also run the appropriate diagnostic on the hard drive.
