    I have:
    Compaq Pressario 2100 Laptop, XP Home.

    The problem:
    It doesn't boot (keeps rebooting if you leave it on its own).
    Booting in Safe Mode hangs at __ atisgkaf.sys ___ , then BSOD -- and
    reboots again.

    I tried:
    Boot from Compaq Operating System CD: Microsoft Windows XP Home SP1
    Run chkdsk /r . Hangs at 50% (more than 20min, no result). Have to
    Run fixboot -- new bootsector was succesfully written.
    Run chkdsk /r again . Hangs at 50%, even no sound of harddrive
    rotation :(
    Run dir . Writes: Directory of C:\ An error occured during directory

    Boot from XP installation CD -- same result :(

    Note: The fan keeps running like crazy, hot air is coming out. I
    checked the vent slots, they seem ok.

    I would appreciate any help,

  2. This is a group for shuttle PCs, you would be better off in a Compaq
    or Microsoft group but it sounds to me as though its screwed.
