My pals laptop has the BSoD. It comes on as Windows boots. Tried getting into safe mode and same happens. Any ideas?
Oh, Win XP.

Is there a disc in the disc tray?

Windows repair seems to have done the trick. As soon as Win XP came back to life I loaded SP2 & SP3 together with Microsoft Security Essentials, which I am impressed with, and it found a severe trojan. Perhaps that caused the problem. Anyway, all back in order.
