I have problem to install Windows XP in my laptop.  Everytime I install the XP, I get the error message "An unexpected error (1065352096) occurred at line 1773 in d:\xpsprtm\base\boot\setup\arcdisp.c."  What is that means?

One of the most common problems in installing an OS is it fails in the middle, and this is often caused by bad RAM.  The other possibility is a bad install disc, which you can get around by making a copy and installing from that.  Test your memory with the diagnostic program from www.memtest.org.  Let it run for a few hours.

It's your ram or ram slot, or bus speed if your overclocking.....

It could also be that you need a bios upgrade.

Also try using a CD drive cleaner disk, try cleaning your disk with glass cleaner and a t-shirt (the best no-scratch fabric for the job), or try a different disk all-together.

It is also possible that your RAM is bad as described above.

I agree with comments as Callandor that ram is biggest culprit, MS Install does not even check to see if you have enough. 2nd biggest is bad file. For MS OS in general, I have yet to have a failure with XP, maybe I need to try harder, do more intalls.  You may need to check that the laptop is not too old (too small, too slow, incompatible).

Sometimes it helps, if you can, to use diskettes for the initial setup process (how many now, 5?) and to use the HD for the next stage of setup.
