hp compaq nx 5000 problems

so after installing lg phone suite i constantly got blue screen of death on it
so reinstalled xp corp. pro and it worked fine shut it down and it froze at the windows logo on the next start up. so rebooted then went in to windows eventually after leaving it on for few hours. laptop after 1hr gets really hot and smells a bit plasticy.

then reinstalled again and it came back with after the drivers went in read or disk write error

so decided to format and reinstall again and this time it froze during installation at 35 mins to go.

what do you think is wrong

could it be the hard drive

baring in mind this laptop was found in a skip and repaired with new keyboard and charger about year and half ago. came with no os on it


might be hdd diags in BIOS
or swap test the hdd.
are you deleting the partations?

yes clean install, and formatting and dleted old windows

But did you delete the partations. if so then ok.
sometimes persons say clean and all they did was format - leaving the partations as is
