What problems were you having that you needed to re-install XP?

There is a Microsoft article on this error message click here;en-us;Q314474, but given the laptop was "having problems" - you don't give any clues - it could also be the HDD has failed.

Perhaps a bit more information on the "having problems" symptoms would help.

Well she had a load of crap on it plus it was running quite slow i had done what i could the someone said try and reinstall windows XP and start from Scratch well i did not do a complete install i did a repair when it asked me instead . Then i get this come up "The file asms on Windows XP Home edition Service Pack 2 cd is needed. I put the disk in then it says "Type the patch where the file is located and this comes up in the box Globelroot\device\cdromo\1386 i know this sounds awfully confusing. Have killed my wife's computer sorry above does not make sence
