    Wait I think I see, it goes past the post and the white progress bar runs and it begins to load windows and then blue screens??

    Have you ever successfuly gotten in with the last known good?

    Remove your Memory one Dimm at a time and try rebooting

    Firstly, I would suspect the chipset drivers for your motherboard.
    Make sure you have the latest ones, that are written for XP.
    Get them from your motherboard makers website.

    This error can also occur if the BIOS is not compatable with XP. Again check the makers website, and be careful if you have to update the BIOS. If it goes wrong, your motherboard becomes a doormat.

    Possibly kiwi, but you want to start small and work yourway up, then you eliminate all possibilities in a exit ready method. The memory can make that crash every time, mismatched or a bad chip...XP will try to load and crash right after the white progress bar

    I'll try all that when i get home

    Peter, it doesn't even make it to the loading screen

    right after it checks the harddrive and stuff like at the beginning, it'll go the screen that gives you the options and then right after that i get the blue screen

    Also, i haven't been able to load windows with the last known config, it just gives me the same result

    if you are getting to F8 for advanced startup you are getting pretty far

    Did it ever get into windows?

    A 7B stop error is a "device not available" from memory.
    Possibly the HDD not correctly identified or available, if the IDE drivers are corrupt?

    I would be tempted to boot from a DOS boot disk first. Work from there.
