    a friend dropped this in may lap today and the problem is , the laptop keep looping when you boot it up , meaning it goes upto windows startup and instead of loading the final screen , it loops back to a restart , so then i tried to use the recovery cd and booted the pc with that , but as soon as the window detecting hardware comes it shuts the laptop off , any tips on how to work around formatting the laptop and getting to reinstall OS (windows xp ) on to it , thx.

    its a gateway solo 1450

    It is probably overheating. You will have to open it up and clean out all the fans and heatpipes. Make sure the fans all spin and work before closing it up.
