Error stopping PCMCIA.

DSL loaded on an HPpavilion ze5375us Laptop 2.4 Ghz 40 GB HD 512KB Ram -- though have had many errors trying to install MEPIS, Ubuntu and Kubuntu after a disastorous multi-partitioned HD/multi O/S done w/ Partition Magic in XP and an uncountable number of attempts of restoring a workable O/S. Only DSL install to HD worked, but test of HD on startup still yields multiple errors.
Beginning to believe this is a hardwarewith need to open up laptop and replace RAM &/v HD) problem given XP error message of
"A problem has been detected and windows has beenshut down..."
with specific error of
both seen at various times.
Perhaps this errors has more to do with fundamental hd problems. Previous attempts to install DSL as ext3 failed where ext2 worked. Do not know if that is important but numerous error message dealing with inodes and other faults pop up.
If anyone has come across an error like this before, please let me know. Any and all help appreciated. I'm a tyro at linux so please excuse any ignorance or obvious solutions on my part.
