I recently bought a new computer that was custom built by my friend. Getting straight to the point, when I installed XP on it the first time, it looked as if it installed correctly. While running XP after the installation, I tried installing my video card drivers to get an installation error from InstallShield every time. I thought this was just because of a corrupt file but it continued, each time I tried to installed any different program. So I got fed up with the copy I had and tried another copy my friend had gotten.
This was a custom built version on XP with a built in theme and everything so I tried installing it and the installation turned out fine. After running it, the program installation was working great...at first. When ever a program requires me to restart, I restart the computer and when it turns back on, it brings me to the loading screen. After it finishes loading, it restarts by itself before it even hits the Desktop. Then the boot screen has weird lines across it the second time it restarts and it says that the computer restarted badly and it gives me the choice of either running it with the Last Good Configuration or normally. Either one I choose, it repeats the same procedure until I enter the BIOS manually. I change 1 thing in the BIOS and when I restart, it works.
I'm running MemTest86 right now and it has given me 82 errors so far, but it only started testing so I'll update it as we go along. I need help with this and I really want to thank you guys ahead of time for helping me.
EDIT: It's up to 448 errors.
