    Hi all, i'm struggling with what to do about this - my MBP keeps restarting as windows loads up. It starts to load the bootcamp drivers, then bam! Black screen, restart. It gives me about 3 or 4 seconds before it crashes.

    Anyone had the same problem?

    This happens on my dell all the time. I generally means that something in your windows folder is currupted. id use os x to back up your xp files, then format the xp partition & re-install windows

    To give this a bit of context - I had put the computer to sleep in XP, then I woke it up. It hadn't quite wiped the sleep out of it's eyes before I tried to turn the brightness down because i was low on battery power. The second I hit F2 while holding down the function key, the computer shut off.

    Now as soon as the computer loads, it loads the video drivers, then as it goes to load the brightness drivers, the screen goes one shade dimmer (the setting I tried to get it to), then it crashes. I have no time to reinstall drivers.

    Please, please help me!
