My friend has brought his dead laptop over. It is a Sony Vaio with Windows Vista.
When booting up, it blue screens and reboots.
I have tried to boot up with Knoppix and this will freeze when starting up PCMCIA. If I start Knoppix with
it disables pcmcia and boots up fine. So I presume there is a problem with the PCMCIA controller on the laptop. My friend does not use any PCMCIA cards, so doesnt really need it.
Is there anyway I can similarly disable PCMCIA so that Windows will boot up fine?
