My wife's laptop has been rebooting itself over and over until it gets to a blue screen and then it does not stay on long enough for me to see what it says. Here is what little I can get from it:

Windows first opens up with the countdown and these 5 options: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good configuration, Start Windows normally.

None of these options will boot-up the computer. But after I chose each individual task, they all ended with the blue screen of death and this information: STOP:c0000218{Registry file Failure}: The registry cannot load...and a bunch of other numbers and information. The things is, the screen does not stay up more than 2 seconds, so I can't read it all. I do knoe the message ends with "memory dumping". Then it shuts down restarts and goes back to the 5 options above. Is there anyone that can help me or have any idea what this information means? If you need more info I will let it kep rebooting until I have the information on the blue screen. Let me know. Any help would be appreciated at this point. Thanks LaMont
