Need a little bit of tech expert.
Son has a HP DV6000 and last night being the dutiful dad (!) I decided to upgrade most of his programs (spybot, adware etc) and scan. He was out and took the opportunity as he is never off the laptop !
Anyway Vista SP1 needed installing. However gone all wrong since then !
I get the error '!!oxc01aoo1d!! 9854/92544 (RegistrymachineCOMPONENTS)'
Laptop now won't reboot, even in safe mode. I tried windows start up repair ( ran all night) and no joy. I have got into system restore at boot up and managed to instruct system restore to before SP1 was installed, but it has beed running for almost an hour and the CPU light isn't flickering or anything.
Will I need to re-enter system restore and choose to restore to default settings as per when the laptop was purchased ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated especially as my son isn't in yet and all hell will break loose as I'm sure the shakes will kick in if he can't go on his laptop !! LOL
