Alright so I received a computer to take a look at and try to fix a few days ago because it wasn't booting up was saying a system file was missing. First thing I tried was to just run the recovery console to see if that would work but unfortunately had no luck with that. From there I decided to just go ahead to reinstall a clean copy of windows on the computer. Well, every time i have tried this i keep getting cannot copy ____.dll and if i skip them the computer blue screens.

So far I have tried a few different windows XP Cd's and I also tried swapping RAM since I saw somewhere someone mention it could be because of a RAM problem but no luck.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Alright so after spending some time trying to mess with this myself I have run into more problems...

What happened was I figured I would try a different CD drive as I thought maybe the one in there now is the problem. Well, was messing in the bios trying to get it to boot from the 2nd cd drive instead of the first and after messing with several things i ended up hitting restore defaults to bios without really thinking about it.

Well, this has caused me severe problems. For a while i was getting ntldr is missing ctrl alt delete to restart. After messing with some things it appears i am past that now but I am now faced with other problems.

When booting from the CD I am prompted with a press any key to continue screen. Do that, boot off of the XP Cd just fine. As soon as the drive is finished formatting and goes to start to write i get a blue screen. First time the blue screen was for trying to write to a read only device. (didn't grab the code for that as I went back into the bios and changed a couple things again). This time I got 0x0000001A which is memory management.

I am now pretty lost as to what to do, I know a fair amount about computers but it is all from experience and I've never been faced with problems such as this and can only find so much through googling that deal with my exact problems.

This is what the Bios looks like http://img327.imageshack.us/img327/3010/setupbiosami1cq.jpg if it helps any.

Once again I appreciate any help I can get with this as it is starting to become quite frustrating.
