Ok guys, I don't know what happened. I was using my laptop last night, and this morning it just will not boot-up. I have win xp pro installed and the laptop is a vpr matrix. It comes to the windows screen and shows the little blue bar going across then after about 1min, it just reboots. I put in the windows disk and went to repair installation and ran chkdsk. It did find errors on the volume but I do not know how to do anything about it, and if this is the cause? It will not boot into safe mode either. As soon as I click on safe mode, after the white bar loads at the bottom, it reboots like when I try to start it normally? And I've tried booting with the "last good known configuration..." that doesn't work as well.

Anyone have any suggestions? I do not have a floppy drive on this laptop as well if I should put in in a bootdisk and run a sys c: command.

:tazz:

Thanks guys,
-Matt
