Asus build motherboards based on several chipsets. Start by making sure that the SATA controller is set to IDE, not AHCI or RAID. If that still doesn't work and the crash error is 0x0000007b, then perform a repair install or a new install.
Lol Umm it was factory, so they didn't give me a boot/install disk
Do you know anyone that has an XP Disk ?? (should be able to use any XP install disk ) - though most factory installs have a restore partition that you could use to reset the system (usually using F8 or another key depending on the factory while booting) - problem there is it will reformat the primary partition and restore it to the factory defaults so you will need to reinstall all of your programs afterwards.
