After that I spent a few days scrounging for drivers and got just about everything. Alls good until a few days later when I turn it on; I get the message that windows encountered an unexpecred shutdown and ave the options to boot in safe mode, normally, last known config etc, which all leed to the same thing: after the Windows XP logo appears (with the loading bar) a blue screen with white writing appears for about half a second before rebooting and looping round like that.
Luckily I managed to take a photo of the message
It says something like:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer.
If this screen shows again follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or sofware is properly installed (Altho I can't since windows won't load)
If this is a new instalation ask your hardware manufacturer for any windows updates you might need
If problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software (none) disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing (I don't know what this means)
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options and then select safe mode (the same thing happens when I try and use safemode)
*** STOP: 0x0000006F (0xC00002F, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) "
