Hi there,

You need to boot from the disk one by one and follow the onscreen instructions to recover your laptop to factory default settings else boot from a windows installation cd and format the hard drive installing new os,

i had someone try and reboot xp for me and he said it worked then when he tried turning the laptop on after re installing it gave him the same message again. could i not just load a different operating system on to it to replace windows? x
