Laptop doesn't boot.

By Lounia ·
My laptop tries to start up, fails, reboots, fails again, and reboots, and keeps going that way. I already took out the fan, the harddrive, the battery, the memory cards, I've tried everything I can think of!! Can someone help me?

When I try to reinstall the operating system (WinXP) it simply freezes. I get this blue screen that has no words on it, just a blank, blue screen.

So this Blue Screen that you get

Is it after it has started the install routine or is it when the system first starts?

Have you tried some different kind of Boot Disc like a Live Linux?

You can get one from the Cover of a Linux Mag at your Local Newsagent or download one from here


Or you could try a Diagnostic Boot Disc like the Ultimate Boot CD available for download here


and run some Diagnostics on your Hardware things like RAM, HDD tests and so on if it will boot the Disc.
