Looks like a reinstall of xp would best.



Start/run and type sfc /scannow (note the space /)

Undestanding sfc click here

Then make sp2 your first visit online.

It will give you the option to repair, but ia m not sure that will work as you say you still get a BSOD after a clean re-install.

is it i hardware prob or a software prob?
im going to look at the events log and write evrything on it down

If you PC is crashing like that i would suggest it is hardware related and not software conflict..

Sounds like a harddrive failing or faulty ide/sata cables.

Check all cables are firmly secure.
