On a Compaq CMT 510. A blue screen comes up stating:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try chaging video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF85F9AD9, 0xF898B7A4, 0xF898B4A4)

Is my hard disk dead?

Hey there and welcome to TSF...
First thing that I could suggest you is to test RAM and Hard Disk...
Download Memtest86+ from here:

http://http://www.memtest.org/

Take out RAM module and clean contacts with rubber and DIMM slots with brush...
If you have more then one stick of RAM, test it separatelly...

What make/model is your HDD???
Visit manufacturers Web Site and download testing tools and test your HDD for possible bad sectors...

Report back please...

I've restarted it a dozen times, same screen. I've tried repairing it, doing a fresh installation, nothing seems to be working.

Vlad- I ran a memory test last night and it came up clean (let it run for 7 passes). My hard drive is a Samsung SV1203N, I'll get on the HD test right away.

There is more trouble shooting to do before it can be said that the hard rive failed. You should post your computer's specifications as I can not find the model "CMT".

The subject title says problems installing WIN XP Pro.
What OS was this drive running before?
Did you attempt to install XP on a drive that was cleaned/empty?
Did you ever have a successful install?

If you received this message while installing, then the installation got through a good portion of the process.

My apologies. It's a Compaq Evo D510 Convertible Minitower.

It's previous OS was XP Pro SP2.
Not as of yet, don't have an empty drive handy.
I have had a successful install. My disc doesn't have any smudges or scratches, I'm sure it's working.

When I boot up it informs that NTLDR is missing press CTL+ALT+DEL. When I insert my installation disc and it gets to the 33 minute mark in the installation the blue screen pops up.

The Hard disk is running as we speak. So far so good.
