Well I tried the windows vista beta, just to see what all the new features was like but then I couldn't play any of my pc games and it became a bit of a problem. So then I wanted to install my windows xp back on my computer. And right before it gets to the Agreement page in the XP setup (Where you agree with F8). I will get the blue screen of death.

that's the exact screen I will get before windows can even get to the agreement in the setup.

1. I tried formating, since windows vista only allows me to format. As well as use killdisk. Both didnt help the problem.

2. I bought a new hard drive and tried to install my windows xp on it, same error happened as well. with the blue screen of death at the same exact place.

So now I'm stuck with this vista beta version and can't get my windows xp back on my computer and I been trying for about two to three days now.

May someone please help me so I can get back to my computer gaming.

Thank you for you generosity,

Troy

heres my pc specs.

If you've tried a new hard disk, then I would say 99% chance you have bad RAM.

There's a RAM checker on the Vista DVD, or you can use this free one: http://www.memtest86.com
