Hi - XP laptop (genuine, not pirated) froze today - now constantly reboots. It goes through the motion of rebooting - I see the windows XP screen with the little "meter" thing running, then it tells me that it wasn't shut down properly before so offers me options - safe mode, safe mode in networking, normal mode etc - but no matter what I do, it starts booting up and hangs at agp440.sys (I think) and then reboots again - goes on and on doing this and will not go any further. I am on a sailboat in the caribbean - this laptop has all our charts etc. so it's vital for us - but we can't go to a shop to get it fixed and we don't have the installation disk with us - we have other install disks for other laptops but stupid us, we didn't bring the disks for THIS laptop..... HELP - anybody got ideas????????? This happens regardless of whether it is plugged into mains or running on battery power. HELP!!!
