Okay guys, here's my dilemma:
I've got a Sony Vaio PCG-7162L that was loaded with Windows Vista. I elected to downgrade back to XP pro. After inserting my XP Pro disc and the loading of the initial files I received the dreaded "Windows has detected a problem and has shut down..." blue screen of death. I proceeded to jump through all of the proverbial hoops: ran a check disk, looked for viruses, etc, etc. Nothing. I then used KillDisk to completely strip all information off the hard drive and then tried to install XP again. Same error.
