Sorry, I'm a newbie in using computers and laptop, my laptop just continue to finish the setup, however in never ends, when the loading reaches the end of the line, a problem pops up then reboot automatically the system and the setup, and i can't even get into the password access...
the setup ends with this message:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this error screen, restart your computer. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed software or hardware. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

That's All... Hope you can bear with me, thanks.
How was the reinstall administered,from the hard drive restore image or from the disk?
Reinstalls can be for a few different reasons,ie,virsus you cant get rid off or failed drive that has been replaced with a new one and needs a new install of an Operating system before you can use it..
Statring with a fresh install on any computer seems a fail safe way to establish a solid base foundation and a good stable system.
Good ram will help speed thru the processes,faster the better I say,Don't forget the SP2 updates so the devices will function correctly with the right instructions etc...
Lastly,If install was from the original disks and there are still the faults present you may have to return the unit to the manufacturer for a service agent to reinstall,
