can you post EXACTLY what the blue screen said?

have you tried a different mouse?

what's different about this windows xp as opposed to the original windows xp?

are you using a full xp disk or an upgrade disk? is this the disk that came with the computer?

ok...are you still getting he blue screen? if not...could you try to cause it again..we really can't troubleshoot the message without the full...well..message...

why are you using a different disk than the one you got with the computer?
where did you get the disk?
