    Hi

    Same problem exactly when loading XP. Does seem to be RAM issue but strangely both ram cards appear ok when used in the slot that provides video RAM. XP loads OK.

    However when the second RAM slot is used with either RAM card XP generates the same error message and won't load.

    One RAM card is 128 the other 256. and both work fine provided only the video slot is used.

    Any thoughts?

Yes, it should run WinXP. The minimum system requirements to run both Windows XP Home and Professional are 233Mhz, 64Mb RAM and 1.5GB hard drive space. I have a Toshiba Tecra 8000 that still runs XP, a little slow, but has run smoothly for 5 years.

The setupdd.sys error is most likely a due to a defective hardware like RAM. Try installing only one ram if you have two to see if either one is defective; it should work for most users.

Your laptop is not new enough for winxp. There are no drivers for it.Im surprised that the BIOS let you install it.
I would try to use the win2000 drivers, they may work.
Sorry for the not so good news.

Please let me know how you make out.
