I'm using an Asus VX1 laptop, running Windows XP w/ Service Pack 3. When I try to start up, it seems to fail and then retry. It has the same issue when I try it in Safe Mode, and with the "last known good configuration". When I try to start the Recovery Console, I get a blue screen (contents below). I haven't installed any new hardware or software since the last time I successfully started and I can't try the suggestions below since I can't even use Safe Mode.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Contents of blue screen:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
