    Hi all,

    I have a laptop that is dual booting Windows XP Home and Vista. When I boot to XP it gets as far as starting to show the desktop but then produces a blue screen of death with the error:


    I can boot to Vista and use the machine with no problems. I can also boot to XP Safe Mode with no problems. I have not added any new hardware recently.

    I have ran chkdsk on the drive that XP boots from, I have also gone into XP safe mode and selected a diagnostic startup so that only basic services are loaded, but I still get the blue screen error.

    Laptop specs:
    Centrino Duo 1.8GHZ
    2GB DDR2 RAM
    512MB nVidia Geforce Go 7900 GS
    2 x 120GB HD

    Any help is much appreciated on this!
