I own a Sony PCG-7M1M laptop and recently it has just started locking
up, keyboard wont type and when I try and re-install xp home it gets to
installing devices it just reboots.
It can lockup at the bios, half way through booting I cant dont anything
because sometimes the keyboard does not work.
Anybody got any ideas as what could be wrong.
