Hi new to this kind of this usually find answers without posting, but not in this case!

Ok I have a relatively old PC, running XP Home Ed SP3 when running any media or even browsing the net it loves to cut out. There is a clicking noise then blank black screen I restart for it to tell me it has recovered from a serious error.

After searching the net I have tried various approaches to no joy......cleaning fans etc... Ive checked microsoft web site it tells my the system maybe trying at access drivers not compatible with XP!??! Checking the system I have 2 hard drives that are running driver version 5.1.235.0 (Maxtor 6y080l0) Main, ST340810A Secondary. Is this it?

Any help would be great! As you can tell not very well clued up with this!

Thankyou please

You need to turn off Automatic Restart so when you do get a BSOD, you will be able to read what it says, record the information and post it here if you have problems in the future.

Right click on My Computer and click Properties
A window will pop up. Select the Advanced tab at the top.
Under Startup and Recovery Settings click the Settings button.
Uncheck box for Automatically Restart.

report the error if you get one next time this happens
