Problem with a fresh install of Windows XP Pro
 
Ok my brother's laptop was having problems so he formatted it and installed Windows on it. Doesn't boot to desktop. He brings it to me. I look at his Windows disk it looks scratch up bad, so I figure maybe that's the problem. I then format and install Windows using my disk. Well I get the Blue screen of death. But it reboots so fast that I cannot read the. Stop codes. I can boot to safe mode. How can I get the stop codes? Is there a way to slow reboot so I can read them? Thank you.

I did fine out that in the Devise Manager there are 7 items that no drivers where installed for. I don't know why they should of use Microsoft's drivers from the install windows xp disc. But it was in safe mode to find that out. Heres the list.

Mass Storage Controller

Multimedia Audio Controller

Network Controller

PCI Device

PCI Simple Communications Controller

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
