my laptop packed up yesterday and i've been trying most of last night and this morning to fix it.
I was just online, when the laptop crashed (after installing flash player), i then had to restart it via the power button,
but now when i turn it on, completes this screen:
but after the screen goes completely black!!!
i cant get into windows
All my data is in my windows installation so reformatting is not an option.
I can boot into safe mode, and everytime i try to run a system restore, it get the the "restoring files" bit then when the progress bar reaches around 43% the screen changles to a blue screen for like half a second (sort of like the blue screen of death from years back) then the laptop restarts!!
Its an HP nx6325 running a generic version of windows xp,
