Since 2 years I have an Esprimo Mobile V5505. I haven't had any problems until yesterday.
When I turn the laptop on, it loads Windows XP. Right after, it shows a blue window, which only lasts for less than a second. After that, the laptop re-boots, giving a black window with options for save start-up, last known working configurations and normal start-up. It doesn't matter what option I choose, the laptop keeps rebooting. Sometimes the laptop succeeds in starting windows, which allowed me to do some diagnostics.
The command chkdsk works, but it doesn't give any results. When I do systemcontrol, it runs, but it doesn't give a report. The first option doesn't work, second does, but again, it runs, but doesn't give any report that some area's have been repaired.
At the moment, my only option seems to re-install windows, but I'm reluctant to do that. I've got several programs in a student version, and re-installing windows means I've got a lot of admistrative problems to re-install those programs...
Can anybody help me ?
By the way, I live in Belgium and the laptop is (I believe) just outside warranty...
