my sons p4 1800 lifebook 1020c will not boot up,he told me there were a couple of error messages on screen prior to it not booting,it starts and gets to the windows xp but then crashes after flashing a blue screen but it happens to fast for me to see what it says,problem is i have no recovery discs for the laptop and it wont boot from a winxp disc as it says "booting from non emulation cd"but it does nothing, i have also tried herons boot cd but says the same, any ideas please.

When booting try holding down F8 or F12 and see if it gives any options.
