hi Woodchip, I tried each ram stick one of them causes the computer to rebbot. The other causes the the same blue screen message to come up with the same results.

Is my ram on the way out or is it another hardware problem. I ran a Memtest86+ this found no problems.

Whatever dban has 'nuked' it'd done a good job. I'd reinstall again and use the windows installation to do a full reformat prior to install. Doubt if it's a ram problem.

You could try a Repair if you have a OS CD, Start the PC with the CD choose Setup, it will then look for a Operating System on the drive, it should find XP click on what it find to select it, then press R to repair
