A friend bought over their netbook, an Acer Aspire One, it froze on loading windows, last file it loads is classpnp.sys.
Ok, I have seen that before so that wasn't an issue, thought I could repair it, now this is where the fun starts.
Took the hard drive out the netbook and plugged into PC, ironically it boots straight into windows 7. So I thought I would run Ubunutu Live on the netbook to see what would happen.
Ubunutu Live, gets to OS selection menu then freezes.
Windows XP, again, freezes at XP logo.
Windows 7 repair, can't even get it to load, from Disk or the hard drive.
Cannot load any OS whatsoever.
However, it will load stuff like Hirens boot CD and I can run the utils off of it.
The hard drive is fine, full surface scan, bad sector check etc etc
Memory test passed fine as well.
So I am completely lost now. I would say it was a motherboard failure but hirens boot cd works and the utils and it passed the system check.
Any help would be appreciated, please remember though this is a netbook and as such has only like 4 options in the bios!
