My computer just crashed yesterday evening while I was visiting various internet sites like video streaming, and you tube. I tried to install Avery software called DesignPro from the Avery website. This was one of the Top Download Picks of The Washington Post and PCWorld. That would certainly make everyone's ears perk up, wouldn't it?Tried with 2010 as the date. http://magicnewspaper.com/blue-screen/blue-screen-of-death-with-ftdisk-sys-error.html

Its a Dell Dimension 4600, originally purchased back in 2004 I believe. right?Thanks!**Edit**Found this "How to Create a Bootable Windows XP Setup CD/DVD on a System with Windows Pre-loaded".
