    Hi All,

    Have a Compaq Presario C304NR Laptop that is stuck in a boot loop. I have pulled the hard drive and scanned for malware and virus' and checked for disk errors using chkdsk /r on another machine. I used the windows debug tool to read the minidump and these are the results:

    No other hardware is plugged in to the laptop. I checked the version of ntkrnlpa.exe and logonui.exe and they are an older version than on the XP sp3 machine that I have as a test system but I'm not sure if I should try replacing these files.

    Any help greatly appreciated. I normally don't mind trying a reformat and reinstall but since I dont have any access to the machine in a running state (even in safe mode) I would like to avoid having to backup and reinstall everything.
