    Hi there,

    I own a Sony PCG-7M1M laptop and recently it has just started locking
    up, keyboard wont type and when I try and re-install xp home it gets to
    installing devices it just reboots.

    It can lockup at the bios, half way through booting I cant dont anything
    because sometimes the keyboard does not work.

    Anybody got any ideas as what could be wrong.

    Thanks Paul

    You can remove it and with a notebook to desktop drive adapter, mount
    in a desktop and run chkdsk /r to eliminate it as the source.
    Otherwise, it is likely a mainboard problem and you should use your
