Sorry if this is the same post twice, but I can't find it otherwise.

Hello and thanks for reading.

I have a ViewSonic tablet laptop that had the unfortunate experience of having a keylogger type worm installed onto it, so that my "friend" was able to spy on all of my emails. I figured the best approach would be to clean the hard drive with DBAN. This worked fine on my desk top...and appeared to work well on my laptop as well.

The problem now is that when I try to reinstall the recovery disks for the laptop and even the windows XP that I use for my laptop, I get the same error: (blue screen)

A problem has been tetected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer...blah blah blah.


Technical information:

***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF99E640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


My laptop does not have a cd player, but I am using an addonics peripheral CD player.

The error occurs after the recover disks boot up, the computer says to push R for display system recovery options. I do so and I see the appropate "starting systems recovery" scroll at the bottom of the screen.

After that, I see the error.

I also tried to use my desktop windows disk to see if I had a problem with my recovery disks...same thing.

Any help would be appreciated.

?????? I am confused. Who's username would I use to search for a problem regarding my problems installing XP?

How will this help my problem?

I did a search and did not find anything helpful. If you can direct me to a prior post, that would be great.


Thanks

your post is a bit confusing.....are you trying to install with a recovery disk or a full XP disk?
