I believe the computer is booting fine because once it finishes, I can move my mouse around and hear it hover over the Norton Anti-virus buttons (because I need to renew my subscription, Norton is the first thing that pops up after a boot).
I've tried booting using all the different options: "with previous settings that worked", various Safe Modes, etc. but nothing works. In fact, when I try to boot in a Safe Mode, the computer never finishes booting. It seems to get stuck after filling my monitor with a lot of lines such as " ..\system32\ ..sys".
I went into BIOS thinking I could somehow re-enable my video card but there's no option for that there. I also tried physically removing my video card and reinstalling it, but that didn't work either.
I've thought about booting with the Windows XP CD to reinstall Windows, but how can I do that if I can't see the prompts? Any ideas?
I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this type of question.
