"I tried to boot up with Windows 7 17" laptop"
Did you use the windows 7 advisor first to see if the xp laptop was compatible?
Do you have enough ram?

I never had this problem before. When I shut down it updates it self and when I use it the next day it boots up fine. But this one time I shut down and tried to boot up the day after and all I got was a black screen. My touch control pad does not even light up like it use to. (The top of the keyboard where u have ur controls such as volume, trackpad lock, wireless connection access etc..)
