Default BSOD New install Crashes

This has happened to me before. I've reinstalled windows XP. I start my PC and get the XP splash screen, then the PC crashes. I get a BSOD but it happens so quickly, I can't read what error I'm getting. I've torn my PC apart, and have been able to determine that it's the HDD. It's a WD 320Gig Sata. Now I've ran WD diagnostics, and it says that there is nothing wrong with the drive. Is there a way to freeze BSOD so I can read the error message? I'm at a loss of what to do.
