I have a Compaq Presario 2100 Laptop. I turn it on and it starts to load windows. Then flashes a blue screen with writting on it but it flashes to fast to read. I tried to use last known good set up, safe mode, and safe mode with command prompt. All gives the same result. Flashing Blue Screen with writing and can't read it. Hope that someone can help me with this.

Boot to an XP setup CD and invoke the Recovery Console. Press R when asked and get to the command line. Type chkdsk /r and press enter. When it completes, remove the CD and type exit and press enter.

i searched one of the errors given in the BSOD, and it pointed to a Symantec error. Anything like Norton installed?
