error 32768


hi, i recently got two computers from yard sales, one didn't work at all but looked newer so i interchanged some parts to make it at least run it is a Compaq and i used an hp for parts. The only two parts i changed were the power source and the hard drive.I turned the computer on and had to delete two accounts by using safe mode and making an account for myself as administer. I then began deleting programs such as nfl games and etc. After that I tried to reformat using a dell operating system cd that had Microsoft windows xp home edition including service pack 2. However, i keep receiving the message

File \i386\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. The error code is 32768
Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit


I looked it up and found that it was caused by third-party adware. I have found that i have Antivirus pro 2010 on the computer, i have installed and removed both Malwarebytes anti-malware, and spybot seek and destroy several times, Both will finsh installing and work for approximately two seconds before disappearing. Also when i go to click on either an error code come up, for malware it is

Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item

However i receive this message both when i am in safe mode in the admin account and out of safe mode. Any ideas at all about what i can do would be very appreciated.

OEM's copy of windows is not the same as what you would buy. It has been changed to include their software and settings. Because of this, I would be surprised if you did not have problems. Windows is looking for things that are not there, and finding things that there that should not be.

In my opinion, the best thing to do is buy a copy of Windows 7 and have done with it. I know that is not what you want to hear, but it is my opinion. Win 7 OEM version is selling on NewEgg for $99.
