I recently reformatted my hard-drive and reinstalled Windows XP. Since then I've had blue screens all over the place, and I've tried to fix it, but there seems to be a different cause each time!

I'm guessing it's to do with outdated or faulty drivers, or failing memory, but I admit that I don't really know how to read these things.

Antivirus seems to aggravate the situation, and has been temporarily disable to provide some temporary semblance of stability.

Included are the past three days' worth of minidumps, which I don't completely understand.

What sequence of steps did you use to format the hard drive and do a clean reinstall of Windows XP and get that computer up-and-running?

--------------------------------------------------------

Did you use an actual original Windows XP CD, or did you use a recovery disc kit?

--------------------------------------------------------

Assuming that's a name brand computer, what's the brand name, model name, and model number?

--------------------------------------------------------

Go into the Device Manager.

What's listed in these headings?

Display Adapters

IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

Network Adapters

Other Devices
(if this heading exists)

Sound Video And Game Controllers
