My fiancé's laptop started to crash and would get BSOD errors to the point that she couldn't even boot up because it would either take forever or just crash.
So I figured I'd try to reformat, as it's done this before and this was the solution last time.
On Windows 7, it will not go passed the "Setup is starting..." screen. On Windows XP, it crashes once the setup is about to start (BSOD).
I shut it down and let it sit for 5+ hours, in case it was overheating, but it's doing the same thing anyway.
By now, I figure it's something to do with the hardware but I hope not.
