SO I go to turn on my laptop and it doesnt start.... :thumbsup: It comes on and i see the Sony welcome screen then it asks which mode i want to start it in. Ive tried Just about every mode listed. Safemode, safe mode command, Regular, LAst working. None of them work. It gets to the windows loading screen and about 5 secs in i get the blue screen of death and it restarts and does the entire thing over again. I heard that you can make a boot disc with a floppy. Well the problem is i have a newer Xp laptop and they dont put floppys on laptops anymore. So what are my other free options.

I have a sony Sz110 With Xp Home. Sony support deffinately was no help.

You can also make a boot disk on a CD ( http://www.bootdisk.com )

But we'll need to know what the BSOD says in order to help troubleshoot the issue. There's pictures at this link ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ ) that'll show you what info we need. Have you selected the option (on the screen with Safe Mode) to disable automatic reboot? That'll leave the BSOD up long enough to read the info.
