Fatal Error Please Help

Specs: XP Home Edition, 60 GB/512 MB

Hey, I have a laptop running on XP and one
day the screen just started blacking out
randomly. Like i would be loading internet
explorer up or just loadin the CPU up and it
would black out. So what i did was put the
original operating system CD that came with
the laptop in and loaded it up and deleted
EVERYTHING. I reformated the whole
harddrive, i had 2 choices quick or just
regular reformat. I did the regular one and
it took like 8 hours finally it finished and
i went back and installed XP from that CD.
It started DLing just fine and all the
sudden an error comes up saying Fatal
Something Something Win32LastError:
3758096642 i clicked ok and it restarted my
cpu and it started DLin XP again and the
same error came up again. Anybody have any
ideas for what to do?

Sounds like a hardware issue, test all your hardware and pinpoint what is failing, or send it the manf. for testing, OR take it to a local shop for testing.

I would delte the partition again and reformat it. That could solve your problem, that is, if you are using an XP installation disc and not the recovery discs that come with HP.
If you are using the recovery discs, you may call HP and see what they have to say about it.

Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks

When doing a recovery off your partition make sure your going into advanced options, then you will accually format your drive, if you do not choose that then your doing a NDR or non destructive recovery that just puts windows over windows and only really helps replace your original registry keys.

Also go to http://www.hp.com/ and enter bph07150 for resolving fatal exception errors.

Hope that helps!

If your computer says, "Printer out of Paper," this problem cannot be resolved by continuously clicking the "OK" button.
