Windows 7: laptop in reboot loop - atipcie.sys

laptop in reboot loop - atipcie.sys

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, HP G61-304NR laptop is auto rebooting over and over again. I have tried system recover from my recover disks - it did not work. I ordered system recovery disks from HP and had the recover disk reformat the Windows partition (I have a valid backup of this computer). This did not resolve the problem.

Tried to boot in the following modes:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode w/Command Prompt
Low Res Video
Disable Driver Signing Enforcement

None of these things work. It appears that the problem may be associated with atipcie.sys driver. I assume this because the safe mode driver boot stops at disk.sys and the next driver that needs to load is atipcie.sys. At that point, the computer goes into windows and then reboots. I cannot get to a command prompt. I have tried to get to a command prompt by booting from the recover disk, by booting through safe mode with command prompt. I cannot get there. The laptop successfully gets through BIOS, and goes to Windows, but then it goes through some command screens (looks like scripts, cscript.exe), but then automatically reboots.

I have physically inspected the hard drive. There is no visible damage. Please help.

Try booting to command prompt using Windows disk. Then run:

sfc /scannow

To see if there are any corrupted files that can be repaired.
