We have a HP EliteBook 8730W with XP Pro.

If we boot the laptop normally, it get past WinXP screen and then goes blank

If we try and go into safe mode, it hangs at hpdskflt.sys

If we try last known good, screen goes blank.

Tried booting from XP cd and blue screened.

Any help would be appreciated!
