hiya!
[email protected] having afew problems loading windows onto an an old PC. the PC in question is an old pentium 3 450mhz (@ 600Mhz) with 128Mb of ram and a 6Gb Hard Drive. i have tries 3 versions of windows and each gives me a different error!!

on Windows 98 SE: the scandisk is running and then it stops at 99% and at the top in light blue text reads:
Run Time error M6111: MATH
- Floating Point error: Stack underflow

and then the PC just freezes.

on Windows ME: the scandisk runs all the way through and stops at "copying the nescesarry files to install windows..." and then it either freezes or goes back to the E:\> prompt!

Windows XP Pro: boots perfectly and then the grey bar at the bottom says: "setup is loading files" and then says in the main screen:
File \ntkrnlmp.exe Could Not Be loaded.
The Error Code Is 7.

at first i thought it was the CD drive playing up but i tried it with my NEC 1300A DVD RW and i got the same results! then i switched the Hard Drive and still the same results!!

any help is much appreciated!

Regards

Could be a faulty memory chip. Do you have one or more to swap around?

well many thanks to both of you but im afraid the Knowledge base question applies only to Windows NT 3.** and i currently have no SDRAM to swap as I use only DDR in my PC so i'm still in the same situation!! i thought it could be to do with the overclock but it didn't install even at 450Mhz!!!
