I have had an advent 7098 laptop for just over a year now and when i turn it on it goes past the advent screen then comes up with a screen asking if i want to start it with:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt
Last Known Configuration
Start Windows Normally.

I have tried all of these and none of them have worked. When i click the last known configuration, safe mode, networking of start normally it loads with windows xp then flashes with a blue screen for a milisecond then restarts. However when i click safe mode with command prompt it writes a load of sentences then stops at agpcpq.sys for 5 seconds then flashes with the blue screen again and restarts.

At the moment i am borrowing a friends laptop until i get mine fixed.

Hi James912,

See this article. The last point under "Symptoms" sounds like what you describe:

Problems when Windows XP tries to load the Agp440.sys service

See if this helps.
