After suffering through multiple failed reinstalls on a customer system, I finally checked the (newly bought) HP disk set only to find that not only were the old disks partly unreadable but the new ones also had random files unreadable.

I suggest you download a disk checking routine before you waste any more time.

This should do the trick.
CDs and DVDs are not the 'rock(s) of ages,' they can decay.
One mildly corrupt file can screw up subsequent operations.

Hi,
setup the computer with basic functioning items. tower-Graphics Card-Monitor-Mouse-Keyboard.
Unplug any un-necessary devices ** Printers-Scanners-USB Devices** et,c.
It,s a process of elimination. add devices once initial P.C Is setup. Dependant on Bios, you should get some beeps or error warning messages. I,d make a note of these if applicable, to make fault-finding easier to pin-point.

Mike @ Compurepair.

The device is the hard drive. What's happening is that the hard drive has a bad sector. It loads to the point of the bad sector, then can't continue. You need to replace the hard drive and you will be able to install Windows.

Try cleaning the CD with dish soap and water, u may have a dirty disk, be careful (don't scratch it). Try using a different XP install disk from someone you know, just use your product key instead of theirs when it asks for it. Your install disk is failing.

Re-installing xp


A cyclic redundancy check (CRC error) is an error checking program that is used to verify data and can be caused by hardware or software. The most common causes are bad CD disk, hard drive or memory. To run diagnostics press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Examine the Windows CD and see if there are any scratches or smudges on the media, try another CD disk if you have one.
