Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a sony vaio PCG-V505E that has random system errors which automaticaly reboots the system. I turned off the auto reboot feature and was able to find the file that I thought was causing the problem. So I uninstalled the software but the problem resurfaced with just another problem file. I thought it was the hard drive (WinXP OS) so I isolated it with Knoppix Live CD and had a similar problem, which looks more like a bus problem. Any ideas? Thanks.


Answers :

Try booting Knoppix without the hard drive installed.

I had a similar problem with mine, even booting with the failsafe option wouldn't work without the hard drive out of the system.

Give that a shot and let me know what happens.
