and now vaio laptop t5500 1.66GHz 2gig ram i was using
refuses to load xp-64bit install
bios password accepts then screen goes black 3 seconds later
then bios password appears again
upto date virus checkers avast and avg would have stopped viruses in download
spybot would have stopped malware etc
i really hope the system does not need to be reinstalled as this laptop has extremely expensive, sensitive, irreplacable, legal documentation on it

i am contactable for more info if needed

installed correctly
normally you get a choice to download now or later
i would have chose later at that point
it normally asks to restart if you choose later it does so
but this seemed to force itself into my system
restart later. forced a restart of software?
