hey guys, so this is a strange issue and any ideas would help and ill try anything here. So i start up this laptop and the hp screen comes up and loads, then it goes to the safe mode option screen, and no matte what option i choose (even last known good config.) windows begins to load, then it shows an error for literally like .1 of a second then goes back to the hp splash screen. in regular mode it loads the winxp splash screen and the bar goes through once then stops at the beginning again (then i see this split second error screen) the back to the hp splash. this has me confused because i tried doing an xp repair from disc and it said no HD was found (yet somehow i can get the xp splash screen). I did a HD check in the bios and it came out good on both tests, i tried to access the recovery partition from the hp screen and it doesnt recognize the hotkey (ive tried em all).
