    Hey Guys

    My laptop decided to stop working today :(.

    It wont go further then the XP Bootscreen, it just freezes there.
    I can get in with safe mode and everything looks fine.
    So I reinstalled my OS but I got no luck.

    I have updated my Bios but still no luck .

    What can it be? I have never seen anthing like this before.

    Thanks for your help

    Michael

    Hi,

    so, check your RAM with the help of Memtest86, because this sounds like a hardware issue. Or maybe it will better to download a knoppix-live-cd from the internet and try it with this one.
    I don´t want to say that you have a hardware failure, you can test it, if you just remove one of your memory modules or exchange the harddisk, to check if one of these components is faulty and causes
    the "freeze" of your machine.

    If you encounter after all that checks the same problem, then you only the choice to bring your machine to a authorized service partner or your dealer, they have to check your machine then on hardware failures.

    Good luck

    Hi

    I agree with the previous user. Maybe the memory module malfunctions…
    The freeware tool memtest86 can be downloaded everywhere. Google simply.

    By the way: You should format the whole HDD, erase all partitions and then try to install the OS again.
    Have had such problem year ago… the corrupted files and sectors on the HDD have caused such issue.


    Good luck
