I’m currently attempting to fix an older Cicero model I’ve had since my mother fried the hard drive a few year ago. It’s an AMD Athlon XP 2200 I believe (although I may be wrong)
Anyways after concluding the older hard drive was too damaged to be recovered I bought a MAXTOR 250 gig hard drive for a good price and plugged it into my system. I ran the MAXTOR startup disc to partition and reformat my hard drive and I set my BIOS to boot using my CDROM
Once I placed my windows XP SP2 disc into my computer tower after boot up, and after going through steps 1-7 I suddenly get a blue screen error message that says one or more problems had occurred and the error message was as following
Now I did some research and came to understand that the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error is caused by a buggy device driver or an actual hardware conflict. Now I haven’t recently added any new hardware except the MAXTOR hard drive. What could it possibly mean? Should I just randomly take out like PCI cards that may have been left over? What should I do?
