Hello everyone, here is an exerpt from an email sent by my brother, together we are trying to sort out his SP2 probs, without much success! Im hoping someone out there can help as usual.

Had a go at reinstalling SP2 after going to the HP website & downloading latest drivers. Got as far as the pc loading and getting a message that the firewall wasn't active, then when I went to connect it crashed and went into the restart loop. Went into safe mode and went back to last good configuration point (after the SP2 install but before the crash loop) but to no avail. Son also downloaded a new graphics driver but this also didn't work. I'm frustrated, as this is a new pc and it works well, but occasionally falls over with something related to SP2. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!
