Getting error code 4 on install.

Hello,
I am trying to reinstall Winxp on my sister-in-laws pc and when first booting from the cd.
I am getting the error "error code 4 and cant copy the setupdd.sys, hit any key to exit"

I tried 2 different CDs and swapped out the CD-Rom and still no change. Any ideas? This is a new error for me.
Thanks,
AJ

Also, try reseating and/or replacing the RAM.

thanks for that Jazz, reseating the RAM worked a treat.
