Laptop would boot to splash screen then BSOD with re-boot.
I was able to get into safe mode. I did a system RESTORE. Laptop would boot up to Windows XP screen
Using a Windows Live type CD I could bring up Laptop, look at Hard Drive, etc. with no BSOD.
Did a RECOVERY (Hold F10) key. Performed RECOVERY to factory default. Laptop boots
up to XP screen then BSOD. Sometimes I can get pass XP screen and start Registration of Windows.
Might get pass a couple screens then BSOD.
I swapped out the first 512 RAM chip located on the bottom of the LAP top. No change with BSOD
I have not swapped out the 2nd 512 yet as it is located under the keyboard.
Does this sound like a Hard Drive problem? Since I can do a F10 restore to factory is there a way
to copy the RECOVERY partition and put it on another hard drive, swap the hard drive and do
a F10 again to install the RECOVERY back to factory install?
The BSOD is just a quick screen not giving me any time to read it.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
