After you upgrade your computer to Windows XP, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
  • Your computer unexpectedly restarts at random intervals.
  • When you start your computer, you receive the following error message:
 Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

  • When you start your computer by using the Windows XP Recovery Console or by starting from the Windows XP CD-ROM, you receive one of the following error messages:
Setupdd.sys could not be loaded. Error code 4.
Setupdd.sys could not be loaded. Error code 7.

This issue may occur if your computer contains a hardware component that is either damaged or is incompatible with Windows XP. This is normally a RAM issue, one of the RAM might have gone bad and may need to be replaced. If you have two to three RAM installed, try each RAM one by one and see which one among them has damaged. Good luck.
