well, this dose not sound all that good...

The first thing i would do, find the cmos jumper (found in the mother board quick quide, or manual) and use that to clear all settings. Next i would reset time and date (other wise windows will get annoyed) and see if that works... If not, i would start swapping out all the parts i could to find the cause.... We already know that it is not the instalation or the disk...

Just a thought what kind of power supply do you have? if your power supply is not putting out enough power anymore, your computer could start, but windows might crash do to a lack of power.

This link should help you, if you have your manual, it lists useful pages

Hi,

Please check with your system Battery. If you still find the same error after replacing the system battery. Please do clean your RAM.
If the above mentioned steps are done you need not press F1 hereafter. The system will boot successfully without any error.

Thanks & Regards

windows is calling it a bootleg copy because it is one.

One install per cd-key is the legal entitlement.

I'm sorry but we cannot help people with pirated copies of windows, even when you likely were not aware this was an issue
