    I tried installing Windows XP
    I have tried upgrading from both Win98SE and WinME
    as well as a clean install on my blank HD.

    number of different errors
    some bluescreens:
    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    but usually
    says that my C: is corrupted
    and something about a memory pool corruption

    anyway to fix that? i've tried installing on different drives but it always has to check the C: for some reason and it will find some corruption and won't work.

    liau12,

    Most likely, one or all of your RAM chips are bad. I had the same problem. Try switching your RAM chips around. If that doesn't work, try this RAM tester to determine if you have bad chips: http://www.bootdisk.com/dosfiles/docm145a.exe
