So i have been given this laptop by my girlfriends mum as its no use to them. The reason that is , is because it wont even start up. If i start it normally..it will restart constantly. In safe mode it will get to the poing where it says: loaded blablabla/classpnp.sys. i have tried changing the name of it to a .old and .bak file but then i get loaded on a disk.sys file! which then bsod's and restarts. help me please...its very annoying!

Have you checked the Hd for errors first, I mean bad sectors, it may be the cause of the errors to do with the class plug and play system driver.

Enzyme, unless you need to recover something from that laptop, start clean installation. Boot with Windows Installation, go to Recovery Console, and using "diskpart", wipe all partitions off that hard disk, then start installation.

If you want to recover something - get the disk out, put it into a USB-to-SATA (or USB-to-IDE) box for $10, connect it to some other computer, and copy off your data. While there, delete all partitions.

When you do an install use custom and delete all the partitions before starting the install, you don't need to use diskpart to do it, just start custom and delete them all, then install to the unpartitioned space. I would get a new install disk with SP1 if the old one isn't working, and you must use an SP1 to do a repair install if your version on the HDD is updated to SP1 through Windows Updates.

Put your original Windows CD/DVD into your computer, boot from there. Check your computer' BIOS settings how to set boot order so that CD/DVD comes first.
