I remember that I encountered similar problems ( running for 1-2hrs all of sudden got DEATH screen); the problem was that the Internet connection - the way I connect to my ISP; As you see, I installed that application that my ISP provided, somehow, that app drivers had conflict with the Windows XP (SP1,SP2, AND SP3); since then, I used Windows XP Sp2, SP3 configuration to connect to my ISP, and the problem disappeared.
I believed the service is called "PPPOE"
Hope that help.

Stupid question on this. Did you make the CD for memtest a bootable CD? Have you tried another known and good CD that is bootable to see if it works?
i have put the memtest files to a cd
Have you down anything about the unknown device? It is related to a PCI device/ controller. A google search on "PCI\VEN_8086" came up with some items where it is related to quite a few devices.
I think you should try searching and installing from your motherboard driver CD.

333MHz is your processor speed. Memory type/speed depends on your motherboard type.
my computer speed is 333mhz does this mean my ram sticks will also be 333

Will it read any CD?
The most common problems for not booting from a cd are:
1. Not the first boot device.
2. Not a bootable cd.
3. Missing the "boot from CD" message on startup.
Memtest86 is a standalone memory diagnostic tool that runs from a CD on system boot. It executes a series of numbered test sections to check for errors. These test sections consist of a combination of test algorithm, data pattern and cache setting. The execution order for these tests were arranged so that errors will be detected as rapidly as possible. Tests 8, 9, 10 and 11 are very long running extended tests and are only executed when extended testing is selected. Memtest86 supports all types of memory and can be run on any operating system. You will download an ISO file that you can burn to CD.
Did you burn the iso file using nero or similar software, such as Burncdcc?
Can you try that disk for memtest on another computer?
Can you give us the motherboard manufacturer? We can then search for some drivers.
