Question about PC Laptops
I am trying to put windows Xp on my laptop but i am haveing no luck.
as it just freezes at the WINDOWS XP logo and the progress bar just stops.
The screen seems darker as if win xp has not full apeared.
I have had problems with:
Win98..........(had to delete network to get in, but gave up on that)
Win ME........Just crashes whilst installing it
Win XP Home ...Just freezes at logo
Win XP Pro........same as above
Win XP Pro Upgrade....same as above
Windows 98 Second Edition.... worked fine
Tryied changing memory and harddrives still the same
Ive just tried a new hard drive and windows xp sp3 on it and it still dose the same, even in safe mode it stops at WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\MUP.SYS all the time cant get any further

it could be a heat realted, can you get to the cpu cooler? most laptops i have worked on this is accessible by lifting the keyboard.
Give it a blow out with a compressed air can and see if that works, if not try lifting the cpu cooler and cleaning off old thermal paste and reapplying new.
