Hey guys,
My PC has been acting up lately, all of a sudden.
First It didn't load up; it would just keep restarting everytime i turn it on.
I ran mtest, then tried system restore, and HP system restore which led to getting this error message:

Kernel_Data_Inpage_Error

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen then restart your computer. If this screen appears again then follow these steps.

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properlly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need
if the problem continues disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as cacheing and shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to disable or remove components then restart your computer and press F8 and select advance options then safe mode.

Technical Information.

***stop: 0x0000007a (0xC03E14B8, 0xC000000E, 0xF852E384, 0x0F300860)

atopi.sys address F852E384 base at F8521000 Date stamp 41107B4D

Begining dump of physical memory.

Then after trying to start couple times, now I get an error message when I turn it on
"The system is not fully installed. Please run setup again. "
And it restarts.

My PC is running Win XP home edition, with an intel Pentium 4 processor with HT, 1 GB of ram.

Any advice on what to do ? By the way, I can't get windows to start up so any programs that require windows I can't run or access.

May be he is trying to say "reinstall your OS"

You can try using your XP repair Cd, see if it works

I downloaded win xp and I tried to burn it to reinstall windows, don't think I am doing it right because nothing happens when I start windows, just a black screen with a blinking cursor.
Any help on how to burn the CD so that I can reinstall windows ? I attached a picture of the contents of the folder. Thanks guys

When the computer boots!!!

Goto the BIOS and change the boot order by which after booting it can read the CD and load the OS setup

Let me know

Regards

Well I used system recover and it did do me any good. Now when I start windows, I get to the black page with the Windows Home Edition logo then I get an error message "The system is not full installed. Please run setup again"
Is there a way I can access system repair despite that ?
