> I also tried to install XP again, but it says cannot proceed ...
Please tell us EXACTLY what the error-message was.
If you are using a genuine Microsoft Windows XP Professional CD-ROM, or the "System Recovery" set of CD-ROMs that came with your computer, you should be able to delete the partition(s), and then reinstall.
This behavior may occur if you install Windows XP Service Pack 1a (SP1a) on your computer, and do any of the following:
You upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional.
You reinstall Windows XP on your computer.
You perform a repair of Windows XP on your computer.
To resolve this behavior, after you upgrade your Windows XP Home-based computer to Windows XP Professional, or you perform a reinstall or repair of Windows XP, reinstall Windows XP SP1a on your computer.
After you reinstall the service pack, restart your computer.
there could be either one of the 3 parts which is giving u this error
1) instalation cd ...(try installing from a different cd )
2) cd/dvd drive ( try with a different drive )
3) faulty memory card
mostly this issue is being created by faulty memory card if possible try that first
A stop error occurs when Windows XP Professional stops responding. Stop error messages can be caused by hardware or software malfunctions. The error messages appear on a blue or black background. The following steps, which also appear on the stop error screen, help you find out the cause of a stop error and how to fix the problem.
To troubleshoot General Stop Errors:
1. Restart your PC. Unplug each new hardware device, one at a time, to see if this resolves the error. Try to run any hardware diagnostic software supplied by your computer manufacturer.
2. If this is a new installation of hardware or software, contact the manufacturer for any Windows XP Professional updates or drivers you might need. Click Get support, or find information in Windows XP newsgroups (under "Ask for assistance") and then click Get help from Microsoft in the left-hand column.
3. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) to verify that all your hardware and drivers are compatible with Windows XP Professional.
4. If you can start Windows XP Professional, check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help identify the device or driver causing the problem.
5. If you cant start Windows XP Professional, try to start your computer in safe mode, and then remove or disable any newly added programs or drivers.
6. Search the Microsoft Knowledge Base for "Windows XP Professional" and the number associated with the stop error you received. Specific Stop Errors Some stop errors display descriptive messages such as "DATA_BUS_ERROR" that can help you determine the exact solution for the error. This section discusses how to troubleshoot specific stop errors, based on the type of error you receive.
