My HP laptop is pretty much stuck in automatic repair loop. I keep seeing this error message: OS can't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. I can't boot the laptop at all. Not even in safe mode. Any advice?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
If you have the CD with the OS you can try booting from that. Some manufacturers will create a partition on the drive with the OS for recovery.
What brand of computer are you using?
If there is another partition with the backup OS you would have to go into the BIOS and change the boot drive letter and that may help get your system back up and running.

    Probably one or more system related files/.dll file(s) might missing/ corrupted by any means. Virus might also a cause behind this issue. However the chance is very few. You can try with any good anti-virus boot CD to repair the system, of any. Else you can insert OS setup CD/DVD and try to repair/reinstall the same (don't format, just reinstall the OS again).

    If all the measures do not work, and if the laptop is under warranty, you can contact the HP customer care/their authorized service center for more help. If you are not so confident to doing all of these, it is better to ask for a help to the vendor.
