    Contact Acer?
    Try different RAM?

      Have you ran any hardware diagnostics?

        There is a log file in the root directory of the install partition that may help you find out what the problem is.

        Did this laptop come with XP originally installed or is this a Windows 7/Vista machine that you are downgrading?
        Are you using the Acer Recovery Partition/DVD or are you are you installing from a standard XP install CD?

          use bartpe xp to boot into system.From there check the logfiles as biggles77 mentioned. Also you can try some memory/ hard disk diagnosis tests to check for any probs
