Okay, it seems the model computer I have has had problems all across the boards. Well, I'm on an Emachines T1840. I recieved this computer from a teacher at Job Corps. She told me there was something wrong with the motherboard and that the screen stayed blank at startup. I went and bought a new ATI video card since it seemed the onboard video card was burnt out somehow. Then after we installed the new video card, we booted it up. Halfway into startup, it started rebooting it's self. There was a Windows XP Partition on it, so we figured that was corrupt and we installed a version of Windows2000 from a boot disc. Well, that got as far as putting in a registration key. We couldn't find a working key for that, so we went and bought a windows XP upgrade disc. We got past the registration key entry and it began installation after a brief reboot. Now, it stays at 39 minutes remaining, and after about 15 minutes it brings up a blue screen. It says something along the lines of this. "Setup cannot continue, cannot read file (Forgotten file name here)" And then it says "If this is the first time you have recieved this message, reboot and continue setup" And then it proceeds to dump the physical memory. I re-did setup a few times with the same error message. So, I'm just wondering, what the heck am I supposed to do? It's actually pretty rare that I'm stumped on something like this.
