Blue Screen at Bootup

Specs: Windows XP
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 and had run XP for 2 years with no issues. Earlier in the year, I reformatted and put Vista on it, again with no issues for the last 8 months.
Suddenly, last week, while i was working on something, the OS froze and I had to power down manually. When I tried to reboot, I would get a blue screen. Same for all Safe Modes.
I pulled the hard drive out and got my data off and decided to reformat.
I decided to go back to XP and started the XP installation process, which went fine.
After it copied all the files and rebooted, I got the same blue screen.
I ordered a new hard drive and tried the same thing with the same results.
So now I know it's a not an OS issue and not a harddrive issue.
I have no idea what it could possibly be.

Fisrst the blue screen was a BAD_POOL_CALLER error, then it was some IRQL error, now it doesn't even have an error, but after the STOP message, it says ACPI.SYS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
