I was having a look at a m8's laptop that gets stuck on "Applying update operation xxxxxx of xxxxx etc...


I know its a very common problem, however on this particular laptop, after it has completed the update operation the screen goes fully green, then red, then blue / striped, as if it is cycling through an LCD dead pixel /contrast calibration test? is this a feature of windows or seething?

booting from the windows CD gets stuck on the windows logo
booting from a Live CD shows SMART as fine
Booting in safe mode gets stuck on classpnp.sys (No surprises there..)
