I'd try wiping and reinstalling the operating system or booting from a linux live-cd first to see if it's a windows issue or hardware issue. In the end though, yes I believe the motherboard is probably faulty.

If your computer does not have an operating system then you will need to purchase one. You can still buy Windows XP but with Windows 7 coming out very soon it would be wiser to pick up a copy of Vista with a free upgrade coupon to Windows 7. Or you can run a linux o/s if you a famaliar with linux. Ubuntu I believe is a free linux o/s that you can download to a flashdrive and install to your pc. Hope these tips help.

I also have a HP, which came with win2000 and right from the beginning, I replaced it with Ubuntu Linux. Linux is an old company that produces free software. Three parts are very desirable: (1) Cost is US $ 00.00; (2) It is totally impervious to viruses and xxxware. You don't need to buy any antivirus or anti-malware. (3) When you get your disk for US $ 00.00, besides the OS, it contains ALL THE SOFTWARE THAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED FOR THE LIFE OF YOUR COMPUTER AND MORE. We could install a windows XP Professional and a Ubuntu Linux, for the same price. I believe the Windows XP Home Edition costs US $ 95.00, If you want to use a combination with Windows XP Professional the price is US 150.00, plus labor which we will make very reasonable. Once you get used to the Ubuntu Linux, they say that you have migrated from windows to Ubuntu Linux. Then you can remove all the Windows stuff and enjoy life with the Ubuntu Linux. I have a little 19 page very well written booklet. I can send you a copy, if you request it from me direct (my e-mail). Again I would like to mention that I have an extremely good relationship with my employer and I will make sure that I have his permission in writing, before we start any work. So, basically windows 2000 is very bad by design and this is the only way we can recommend something else and only with the agreement of my employer. CONSTANTIN <>

Wanted better operating system then linux suse on my msi u90!!

Yes you can change to any operating systems at any time. You can change to linux's earlier versions or later versions, or you can change to windows wp/vista/me/98/95. When you buy a computer it comes with an operating system, However you can change it to whichever operating system you want. all you will need to do is purchase whatever operating system you want, it will come with installation disks, pop one in restart your computer and it will walk you threw installing it. ( I have done this with XP & Vista, I am assuming Linux is the same.)

Looks like Windows is corrupted... probably got infected...

First thing... is there any important information on your friends laptop saved... like files, folders... anything he/she does not want to lose?

If so, there are a couple of options... easiest thing is to download a Live Cd linux distribution like puppy linux or damn small linux and then copying the important files to a USB stick or something, but if you don't know Linux very well this may take you a long time.

Another option is to use the Windows cd and reinstall the system... typically you can reinstall into the same directory (overwriting the previous corrupted one) or a different directory like C:/Windows2 and booting into the new one instead. Both of these solutions will work, but will probably not solve the problem that corrupted Windows in the first place.

If you choose second option, I suggest once you boot into the fixed windows to copy any important information to a USB drive, then format your hard disk and reinstall windows from scratch.

If you need any more help let me know.
