Following SP3 download & instal laptop got stuck in boot loop. fed it the XP recovery disk to do a repair in order to remove instalation. But having got to the set up page 3 options set up , repair or f3 exit there is no response to keyboard input. I have tried both the supplied recovery disc and a purchased xp disc with same results.
Perversly when I fed it the win ME disc ( remember that os ! ) it proceeds to the HD format.
Now do I just install ME and upgrade or has anyone a better idea ?
