I am running XP on my laptop and it came up with an error that windows had shut down to prevent damage to my computer. This occurred before I reached the log in page. I tried to re-install windows and had just got to the welcome to your HP laptop page when the same error came up.

The error technical information is:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xC56B7F27, 0x00000001, 0xF74133B0, 0x00000000)

As re-installing windows has not fixed the problem is there anything else that I could try or is my laptop broken beyond repair?

The Stop 0x50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory. The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.

Therefore a spell with MemTest86 is in order.
