Hiya ok i have read through here alot and nothing i have seen has made any sence to me lol. So i figured id start a thread and hope someone can help me.

We bought a pc bout 4 months ago online and it worked fine the first few days, then some errors started occuring, so what we did was used our dell xp2 disk and installed it on the dell 2400 pc that is having troubles,
All was good for a couple days then some blue screen with different errors on it.
The latest error we have received is lsass.exe (ocx 0000005) and some were to do with sound errors and then today i bought the pc up to my place, started it up and there were errors left right and center, IE has to restart cause of a critical error, mcafee needs to close, windows messenger needs to close, kodak picture viewer needs to close, everything needs to close. I have reinstalled 3 different types of windows xp disks.. all home versions, we got this pc with windows xp sp1 but it did an error too so i decided to use home sp 2.
Please help.. it likes to do the blue screen of death after a while and ya i dunno what else.. numerous errors should i just replace the hard drive and throw this one out?? or should i wait and see if this one can be fixed somehow..
thanks

If the PC is only 4 months old it should still be under warranty.

Restore it to factory condition using the recovery CD supplied by Dell or the recovery partition, which ever you have. If the problem still occurs, contact Dell and make them fix it.

I'm confused. In your first post you said We bought a pc bout 4 months ago online, now you say it's over a year old. Which is it?

Did you buy it from Dell or from someone else? Did it come with a recover CD or is there a recovery partition on the hard drive? I think you should restore the system to it's factory state and start from there.
