Default Laptop Problems Aaargh!!

Hi guys

My mate has a HP Laptop and when he turns it on he's met with a blank screen until he presses F1 and the system then boots into windows!!

Whilst in windows he receives numerous pop-ups stating "cannot save file due to read error, files being variants, from c:\$mft 2 diferrent variants of registry keys".

He has tried reinstalling windows many times but no luck!

Does anyone have any clues on what this maybe?

Cheers in advance

Matt Saunders

sounds like a potential memory or hdd problem. i am more inclined to say the former. download memtest and give it a whirl
