Thats one problem, there is no blue screen, after system restore is done, it shuts down computer then restarts and once the desktop loads I get that error about bluescreen and that system restore failed.

sysdata.xmi error

I get parts of your error codes, I didn't copy all of it:

I installed Windows XP a week ago on a brand new hard drive. It had difficulties and I got prompts that such and such a file wouldn't load and got that about several files. When it couldn't fetch them I clicked to ignore and continue. Now I've got a faulty installation and it will sometimes fail to install programs, will crash down to reboot a couple times a day, browser crashes for no reason, etc. I know I need to clean the slate and start over but not going to do it now because I had no use of a machine for 2 weeks. I think your installation is corrupted. .NET has been a major problem for me. How about you?

EDIT: After further looking around many said to update the video driver and some said it could be RAM causing these errors. I used the free memory checkers Ram Tester and Mem Test and both found errors in my RAM. I guess a variety of things can yeild the same error codes. It makes sense that with bad RAM Windows would have a problem installing from the CD and the other probs I've had.

Good luck.

I was able to do system restore thur the screen that has th BIOS access, McAfee's wasn't installed right and made it slow, but its was remove after SR. Also its still abit slower but found out that it also needs more RAM because VISTA ate up alot.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
