Hello, I've got a big problem please help.

My computer wil not install windows XP. I've tried almost everything. My c drive is formatted and the instalation starts normally but stops whit different error messages. The one that keeps returning is:
missing file WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG
Could it be the CD or is there something wrong with my motherboard?

Please help

Is this the first time that you have tried installing XP?

Software (OS especially) installation will show up faulty RAM everytime, even when in normal use it seems OK.

Is the CD clean?

A friend had just installed from the same CD and everything was OK with him.

The C-drive is new and this is the first time I am installing XP but the first time I tried it seemed to work. It worked for a day and than it sayd something about a fatal error and it shut itself down. After that this installing problem started.

thanks for being so quick

Probably a ram issue. If you have more than one stick of ram in it, remove one and try if that doesn't work try the other by itself . hope this helps :)

I'm very stupid so could you explain what you mean by stick of ram? Is that hardware?
thanks

Yes it is hardware and if your not familiar with the inner workings you should take it to the local computer guy and have them test it for you.
