I have a 2.4ghz celeron, 256mb Crucial DDR 2100, 40GB Maxtor HD (brand new), and a 430watt Ppower supply and generic cdrom. I can get into the boot up section and choose the partition off the XP cd, then anytime I try to format ANY HD I have installed, it gives me an error for hardware failure:
"A problem gas veen detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these stepts:
Check to make sure any new hardware of software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask yoru hardware or software manufactuer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart yoru computer, press f8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP x00000050 (x80344838,0x00000001,0x8082BA12,0x00000000)"
Any help would be much appreciated, I do not know what to do! Thanks1
