Hey guys..
My compaq presario 2500 laptop had a little accident in which the laptop fell from my lap onto the ground and the screen stopped working. I got the screen replaced 2 months ago and the laptop seemed to work fine up until today when it started to reboot and will not go any further than that. It keeps rebooting and does not even take me to the log in screen where you choose the user. I have windows XP home edition on my presario. Any suggestions?
Please help.

not real specific eh? try these, theyll help

hdd> as far as i think, you have a 60 gig hdd, prob.toshiba or ibm, either way the ibm diag disk will work to diagnose a bad hdd.http://www.ibm.com/us/
software> try to run an OS repair using your windows disk, if ytou cant, then you know it is hardware related
power>is your power adapter working? your battery any good? check the voltage/amp using a multimeter

hope this helped a bit, laps are sometimes a bugger, it will likely boil down to either bad memory or bad hdd, so i would strongly urge you to do both og these.

You may just have some file corruption. Boot to your Windows XP CD > go to the repair console > at the C:\ prompt type in chkdsk /r
Let this run to completion then type exit to reboot to your hard drive.
