I built a new computer and I'm trying to install xp and I keep getting these different technical info messages saying windows has been shut down. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thank-you...

Hi deschalk, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

I'd begin with a memory test. http://www.memtest86.com

Memtest86 is a stand alone program that cannot be executed under windows and must
be loaded from a floppy disk.

To install Memtest86:
- Extract the files from the zip archive
- Open the directory where the files were extracted and click on "install.bat".
- The install program will prompt you for the floppy drive and also prompt you to
insert a blank floppy.
- To run Memtest86 leave the floppy in the drive and reboot.

NOTE: After the boot floppy has been created you will not be able to read the floppy
from windows. This is normal.

DO a low level format and repartition the drive. It maybe reading the older windows version in the root directory.
