Default Stop error shmorgasbord

Hello,

I have an old PC and this one im on.

I got this new one because the old one started getting stop errors out of nowhere.

Recently, I used the winxp disks from this PC to repair the old PC.
It worked, and I was able to install and play a game on the old PC freely.

But even more recent I was plagued with the winxp activation time limit. Yesterday I successfully activated windows over the phone, using the new PC's product key on the old PC as well.

But now, the stop errors have returned.

Before I repaired the old install, the errors were,
0x8E
0x24
0x50
0x7A

Now, after I activated the repair install, I first got.
0xB4
then after changing some things around saw a,
0x50
0xF7

I have gotten past it twice once in safemode, but after messing around for a few minutes I hear a small click in the tower, and it restarts with a stop error.
and i havent been able to get past it now for awhile.

I'm perplexed at the fact that when I repaired the installation, I was able to use the PC trouble free for a few days. And now after activation, its acting up. (can this rule out hardware malfunction?)

I have searched and studied the stop error help pages, I'd really like to find more info on the 0xB4 and 0xF7 errors.

One thing I can think of is, This new PC has onboard video, wich maybe on the old PC the repaired windows is trying to use the drivers?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

the click could be the hard drive failing.

random blue screen could happen because of bad memory
