My problem is this; I was using my computer 2 days ago and suddenly everything froze for no obvious reason, I couldn't click anything so I had to reset the pc. After doing this and opening my user account again my desktop image and icons would show up but it wouldn't sign me into msn like usual and nothing I clicked on would open. I tried turning the pc off and then on again and tried using everyone else's user accounts with the same result; completely unresponsive.
For about a day after this happened I was still able to use safe mode with networking to try and find a solution but now whenever I try to get into safe mode (with or without networking) my computer automatically resets itself (I'm writing this message from the library right now). So now I'm unable to access my computer at all...
( Note: while safe mode was working, everything functioned as normal but I was unable to carry out a system restore. It worked fine for me at first, it let me select the point I want to restore to but when I tried to click "next" on the last page to finalise the process nothing happened! The button graphic went down and came back up again but it didn't restore the system!(even after multiple tries)
Since it worked in safe mode for that time, but not normally, I imagine the problem lies within something which happens in normal mode on startup but has somehow spread to safe mode as well(I had tried disabling starup programs but with no luck) I think that you can restore a computer back to it's original settings without having to actually get to your desktop, but I don't want to lose all my files (even though I currently have no access to them) and since my computer knowledge (at least as far as it comes to actually fixing problems) is pretty slim, I didn't want to make too many blind changes in case I made things even worse or caused irrepairable damade.
If any of you have any ideas of how I can fix this they would be greatly appreciated, Thanks
