Running a Dell that is 4.5 years old with XP laptop that was designed for Engineers and Scientists (but later the model was discontinued due to low sales).
My laptop died last night. I was synching my phone and itunes when I got the blue screen of death saying a *.sys file was corrupted. I restarted in safemode, than tried a restore and reboot, only to have a different sys file missing. Rinse wash repeat 2 more times, same results.
So looking/fishing for advice. Do I bother with a totally clean install of XP that came with the computer or do I just smash it into oblivion and start anew?
