Impossible to help you from such little information.
It depends on what it says on the blue screen. Please post the words.

Old wine, new bottle. I expect you are missing drivers for graphics and disk controller.

Yes, give us the Blue Screen words as requested, together with at least the first set of numbers. If a file is mentioned then let us have that too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it's the 32 bit version of XP drop the ram to 1 or 2 gig and try the install again. What size/type of hard drive are you installing it on?

Have you checked the support page for the CQ42 to see if XP drivers are available?
