    I had XP running on my pc, but it was giving me alt of problems,so I formated my hard drive, and tried to reinstall xp. Now, when I try to install it, a msg pops up saying "setup cannot copy the file: tapi3.dll"

    So, I tried it all over again, and it gave me a different one. I have never had this happen before. Anyone know how to fix it?

    On Windows XP install, copy failures with a different file being named each time, can mean RAM failure. If you are confident to open your PC case, you could check your RAM stick or sticks are seated properly.
