Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

If you can't find the disk for drivers go to the Manufactures website and download them.


Also Start / Settings / Control Panel / System / Advanced Tab

Under Startup and Recovery choose Settings

Uncheck the box next to "Automatically Restart" under System failure.(You will have to push power button to restart now but will hold the code on screen longer and not flash by)

Make sure there is a Check the box next to "Write an event to system log"

Close


Start / Settings / Control Panel / Administrative Tools /Event Viewer

Highlight System on the left pane. Do you see any RED ERRORS in the right pane?If so double click on the error line and a box will pop up with the error code or file giving the problem at that point in time.Try to take note of the time on the BSOD and match the error with the time.

Might make it easier for dsenette to see where this is coming from.


Regards,
TakeBK


P.S
Not saying 133 and 3200 will or won't work together if 3200 is downsized (Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't depending on all factors) but if they have a different Clock cycle rating CL2,CL3 it might be a problem.Check the info on that also.
