hello experts
i am starting a self-educational project on a disk from an XP SP3 laptop, that starts to boot - then gives a blue screen, referring to Ram (which is  tested ok)
Goal : to find the cause of the blue screen - and note that i ran windbg, but since it refers to ram it does not help
          educate myself to be able to read and use the NTFS disk info to correct problems
it does the same when you try to repair the file system
Disk diagnostics are OK, so i suppose it is an error in the file system
i KNOW i can do a fresh install -so don' tell me that or not loose my time on it, yes?

I was thinking of using Winhex for reading the disk sectors, but since i'm totally unfamiliar with this, i thought that maybe the EE-experts could guide me through the first steps, and provide some DO'S  and DONT's

you may answer with some links,  if they point"understandable" sites, so i can start this

i appreciate all help and answers
