sounds like its overheating.

to test this, leave the laptop running at BIOS and see if it does it again.

if so, buy a can of air and spray the vents.

not sure why you're integrating sata drivers. you'd only need to do that if you're using a RAID adapter.

i integrated the sata drivers cuz this was in the tutorial about xp onthis laptop
and it was writed there that i can also change the mode in ata but the laptop will be slow. i don t know if it is about overheating cuz first time when i wanted to install xp it leaved me to format the c drive and of chorse i needed to install again win 7 and it didn t had any problems doing that.

I wouldnt mess about with the BIOS.

it's just a laptop so it's either be IDE or SATA.

reset your BIOS to default and install XP as normal.

try what i said.

No becose if he reset the BIOS it will boot on SATA, and I think it's a SATA problem. So he has ti change SATA to IDE.

hello again

well i did as u sayd i resetted the bios and i tryed to install the clean xp without any driver and it gived me an blue screen error 0x7b the error was when setup is starting windows so it doesn t let me at least to go at format or something. is it possible to be the hard drive?

Try again.

press R for recovery and run a chkdsk C: /f /r on the disk when you get to the recovery console.

once this has done try the installation again.

It maybe a SATA problem. Go in the "menu" of your computer by pressing F2, and then change SATA to IDE.
