I recently wiped out my hard drive so I could reinstall everything to start fresh. I was having problems with the RAM running at 100% only when I was online doing simple games. I replaced the video card, I've added memory and even set up page file to try to help. So that's why I decited to wipe it out and start over. Now, during xp setup I get a message "DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL". I formatted the drive and set up new partitions and all. I ran xp setup at bootup. Did a chkdsk got the message "the volume in drive C has no label volume" and then it says "the volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems". I got that message also when I ran it on drive D. Please help.

Sounds like a piece of hardware is causing the crash.
Try removing all peripherals that are not necessary for the running of the pc. Use only one stick of RAM. Reset the bios then go into the bios and apply the best configuration settings.
Try again to install.
