Hello all! I have a Gericom Ego laptop which was working fine until recently when i shut down windows xp, an error popped up just as the laptop was switching off (giving an error such as nova...something or nava...something) When i try to turn on the laptop, the power light comes on, as well as the fan, the cd drive, etc. However, Windows XP does not load, and the laptop screen is just black. Everything i try to get it loading again usually fails, although it does load up very occasionally. I am planning to reinstall Windows XP as i think that is the cause of the problem but i have to wait until i can get the laptop loading properly again. Can anybody give me suggestions of what they think the problem might be, and how i may be able to get the laptop loading windows xp again?? Thanks in advance, Robbiejlove.
