Hi there,

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.

Thanks Paul

Otherwise, it is likely a mainboard problem and you should use your
