    I have just re-formatted my HD and re-installed XP Pro using the setup CD. After a successful installation and within a few minutes of starting up the computer turns itself off. After re-starting the same happens or the system freezes during startup. Device manager indicates no hardware conflicts.
    XP was originally installed and functional, I re-formatted as the HD was cluttered, running slow and error report messages were virtually always sent when opening my computer etc.

    Please help.

    After starting XP Run DRWATSON, which may capture some data of the problem and post it. Good luck.
