I've seen that. Causes I found are....

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.

Try to use usb CD ROM and disconnecting your internal cdrom or dvdrom and try to boot the cd from usb. Mine is work perfectly.

Same Problem

I am having the same problem the install stopped at PLUGIN.ocx from what I gather the XP PRO cd does not have that file on it. So... I downloaded it onto a cd and the laptop does not recognize it on the cd. I'm at a loss because I don't know how to get the file into the computer. there is not an operating system on the hard drive. and I am really just a beginner so im not understanding your solution "Try to use usb CD ROM" is there a way I can get the computer to recognize the file I burned on a cd? thank you
