If you are installing Windows XP on the laptop, make sure you put the hard disk in 'Compatibility mode' in the BIOS, which was by default 'AHCI'. Do go to settings as soon as you turn on your PC and follow the steps below:

  • Press the Delete key / F2 when booting up the computer
  • Make sure that the hard disk controller configuration option 'compatibility' / 'IDE' is selected
  • Save and restart
  • Try to reinstall XP

If the installation fails again, there are many issues that perhaps the blue screen. You can be a faulty RAM that can be found in any of several areas, including the RAM cache secondary, the video RAM or the computer's main memory. To determine where the faulty RAM, use the following steps:

  • Temporarily replace your video adapter (if you have an external video card) system board or if you have the built-in video adapter. If Windows can be installed after this change, the video adapter replacement is defective.
  • Temporarily replace the RAM installed in your computer. If Windows can be installed after this change, the RAM replacement is faulty.

You will need to follow the steps below to try and overcome the blue screen error when you are installing the windows XP operating system.

  • The first thing that you will need to observe is that you are booting from your Windows XP CD or DVD, and then you start the recovery console. For more information about the recovery console you can visit the following link: Microsoft article for help.

  • When you have finished executing the commands, you will just type the 'exit' to quit the repair screen.
