I'm in the process of trying to repair my good friend's laptop.
EDITED: It's a Compaq: Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005,HP, Presario V600.
Here is the problem: The laptop starts up and shows the main "Compaq" screen. With the press Esc for setup, and so forth.
If you try to run Windows normally, you get a lovely blue-screen of death.
Safe mode is the same.
And last know good configuration, also gives a blue screen.
Here is another issue. I do not even have a second to read the error message when the laptop will restart.
I want to know if I can find a way to view the message without tweaking the Control Panel (I can not reach it.)
And, if this is a driver or hardware issue, that can, or can not be fixed.
Anyway, thank you for checking out my topic, and for any assistance you can provide me with. : )
