Hi, my friend has asked me to repair his laptop for him because I'm the most electronically educated friend he knows, but this is just out of my reach... Here's the problem... I start the computer and it powers up normally, then it goes to the boot screen were it says that "windows did not start successfully." I tried all the safe modes (Safe Mode, Safe Mode W/Networking, & Safe Mode W/Command prompt.) I even tried "Last known good configuration (the most recent setting that worked.)" but still nothing! When I select any setting, it goes black, then VERY briefly (less than 2 sec.) the BSOD (blue screen of death) shows up, then the computer automatically restarts, and the process is repeated! :?:
*He doesn't have the recovery disc.*. Please help!
