i have just installed win 2000 pro to run with win me after loading at start up i get a navy blue screen with the message, stop:c00021a fatal system error. Has something gone wrong with the installation?

Sounds like a dodgy or incompatible bit of hardware to me.

Try running a check on your hardware before installing. Do this by booting up to an operating system and type this into a command prompt.

d:(Or CD drive letter)
cd i386
winnt32 /checkupgradeonly

Or simply run chkupgrd (I think) from the i386 directory on your CD drive

It puts a text file called winnt32.log in your system root folder (either Windows or Winnt)
