    Ok so one day my computer decides it wants to restart over and over again so I search around for what the problem could be. I tried a new power supply which didnt help. I put my hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and it said it was corrupt so I bought a new hard drive and cant finish installing xp without getting an error. Sometimes I get "SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED" and other times I get "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? Maybe my motherboards fried too? Any ideas would be very much appreciated

    try cleaning the winxp cd to make sure no smudges are on it and check all your hard drive cables and make sure your RAM is seated securely or isn't defective.

    if the motherboard was fried it would not work at all. Maybe a hard drive problem.

    Who's make MB and HD?

    Did you...
    (A) Make sure that the HD was set to CS on the jumper?
    (B) Check the BIOS to see if the MB sees the HD properly?
    (C) Run the HD's setup disk, if it came with one?
    (D) Beat the confuser senseless with a hammer?
