1. The owner had supplied a pirate XP CD.
2. The CD was defective.
3. The ram had failed.
4. The CPU heatsink didn't have heatsink compound.
There are others but these were the most common causes in the past 5 years.
Built recording studio computer. Mobo Intel DP35 DP, Intel Core2, 4 GB ram,Geforce video card, M-Audio Delta sound card, Windows Xp home w/SP2 Had troubles with screen going blank every 15 minutes. Replaced screen, and video card and finally removed hard drive and formatted it to remove every thing including OS.
Reinstalled HD and attempted clean install of WinXp Cd w/SP2
In the middle of install I get error ?setup can not copy the file ?PLUGIN.OCX?
Any ideas ? on how I can complete install of WinXP?
