First off, the only way I can get my comp to boot is in Safe mode. In maybe the last month or so, i'd have a few issues with booting up, but i'd ignore it and restart and 99% of the time it would be boot up perfectly. Then I started getting an error when windows would boot, but mention something regarding checking the disk to make sure its functional. I forgot the actual name of it, and it hasn't come up again since.
I guess its pretty simple to explain. I'll boot up my computer, it will run through BIOS and then go to the Windows XP loading screen. It will go through the Windows loading screen like normal, and the screen after that will be the login screen for the users, but it never gets there. The screen just stays black and the computer stays on. I check the HDD light and no activity once the screen goes black so I'm not sure. I even noticed that the Num lock light on my keyboard stays off.
Is there a way to run that windows program that checks the disks to make sure one isn't defective? Could it be a virus or malware? I should mention I'm on RAID0. Thanks! -Jeff
