    Ok, I got a used laptop from work, always worked fine.

    brought it home, and it worked fine. then all of the sudden it would get through the toshiba screen and go nowhere.

    then the next day, it started up fine 2 times.

    I tried to boot from the XP CD, and it does the whole blue screen thing until 'starting windows' then it just hangs up.

    When I boot in safe mode, or attempt to, it gets stuck on system32\drivers\agp440.sys

    any ideas?

    Ok... well it seems to be royally f;ed up.

    I attempted to install windows again, after booting up. So it could not delete the partition. I had to install over it and erase it. In the process, it ended up with an error and cant complete the install. So now it keeps hitting some error about text.

    I did have a ghost boot disc, and now it wont even finish booting up to the ghost program, it just gets to an a: prompt.

    Anyway to wipe out the HD with not much access to anything and start over?
