Ok, now I have windows XP pro on my laptop and its kinda running better, however, I still have a problem getting it to boot up a little. I plan on keeping it on til we can get this fixed..please help me guys. I appologize for the posting with a pirated copy of windows, I just liked the theme of it, not really the system itself. Ive got the windows xp that came with the computer. Ive read about this problem on other sites and its said things about a problem with the BIOS? Please help guys, Ive atleast got it going for the time being so, Im good for now. I just wont be able to shut it off.
