Fatal Error blue screen.
A new hard drive and re install XP Pro from disk
reloaded programs from scratch.
I am getting that BSD as above from time to time.
I have been around the hardware- checking connectors.
I have made various checks of the system via Amin tools and saved the various reports.
Thusfar noth obvious has showed up.

Any checking software reccommendations please or
advise if I post the reports here?

I assume you have installed sp2? have you installed the motherboard cd or updated info? I had this problem once when I had forgotten the mobo stuff when xp first appeared ok.

  jack 14:01 08 Mar 2008

SP2 is builtin on my version of XP
All the Mobo stuff is in that is relevant-
In looking through one of the reports I noticed that RAm [in 2x512's] is not a matching pair, but this has been the case for over a year - this seiries of event is new- as is the fact the at first Thunderbird would not install but kep crashing- whilst FireFox was OK.
No I have got Thunderbird in[by transferring it from the old drice] but FireFox that was Ok is now Crashing
All very strange.

This sound like a Memory Problem, but are you doing photo wofrk when you get BSOD. if so it may be graphics driver needs updating. you could also try in display settings move the slider down Settings\ Advaced\Troubleshoot

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

just a couple of niggles to sort.
Such the DVd burner in what ever guise - the Slide Show Routine or CD Burner XP Pro routine keeps telling me the disk in the tray is the wrong sort.
I burned OKay on Friday.
Ho Hum
