    My man's laptop will not start up..
    A couple of times we have persuaded it to open by removing the battery for a while first. Have manged to back up most of his personal docs, but not the photos. Would like to be able to salvage them first....
    Have tried running the system restore but windows is unable to fix.
    Getting a blue screen that is gone before you can read it, but the general gist is about "stack buffer overrun" and something about dumping memory into a crash file????
    Does this make sense to anybody? the only other bit I have manged to pick out is 000000F7..
    Thanks in advance to the hero that is going to make my man less grumpy... ;-)

    Am working my way through all the system restore options, have changed points of restore dates a few times....still just going into advent f2 or f12 screen and then jumping straight to tech guys page.
    If I can just get it to wake up long enough to try and back up photo files, then I can just go and start from scratch with a destructive wake up call for the *[email protected]!!*ing laptop.....:(
