Solved: Intel Boot Agent FE v.4.1.09
Okay so the other day, my grandpa called me, telling me that he had a gift- A laptop. Upon receiving it, i realized that it was a fairly old Toshiba Satellite laptop (A15-S129) from the Philippines. After a week or so, i realized that it was still only XP with service pack 2, so i went up to microsoft update, and started trying to update it. Then i got into a bunch of junk about it being non-genuine Windows, because it did not match the region it was currently in (usa). So i abandoned my quest to update drivers and such, and accepted it. Then today, i started getting messages from the comp as it restarted a few times, warning me that it was in danger because it wasn't genuine.
Now, it won't start up.. Instead, I get this message:

Press any key when ready....
I do not have a windows XP disk, but i'm going to go get one from my uncle tomorrow. Luckily, i have nothing saved on there except a good game of Shogun: Total War. If i put the disk in and reload Windows, will my problems be fixed? Also, the battery only lasts about 5 minutes. How can i fix that?
