Ok so I have an Acer Aspire 9500 and I can't even get to safe mode. It will hang and shut off after or during loading of agpCPQ.sys

I don't know what to do. I am in GMT +1 and using my other Linux to enter this info. Please help.

After 25 reboots, I got to safe mode. Once. And now it's hanging again. I can't access the computer, can't run recovery, can do anything (I could run from XP disk, but wanted to have a solution before I dug out the disks from dust bunny [bleep]).

Any help would be appreciated.

Have read similar threads where the problem was identified as the partition-type which was FAT32. Converting it to NTFS solved the problem.
How to use convert.exe: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314097

Convert.exe is supplied as a component of Windows XP and resides here: C:\Windows\System32\convert.exe
You can invoke it from within Windows (although it can't actually do the conversion without restarting), but if Windows won't run
you can boot to a command prompt using an XP system floppy and invoke it from there (provided you change to the correct path
first as shown above)

I have read many different things that say they are the problem. Again, reluctant to do anything until I get better info.
