When I go into Device Manager in Safe Mode, there is a yellow question mark next to Other Devices and under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is a red X next to Unknown Device. In addition, there are lots of dupes in each category, e.g., Monitors has 4 default monitors and 6 plug and play monitors, etc. Can/should I get rid of these?
It's now several hours later - I rebooted, got the black screen, then eventually got this error response:
An internal stack overflow has caused this session to be halted. Change the STACKS setting in your Config.sys file and try again.
I appear to be in DOS, but no idea what directory. Directly under the error response, the cursor is blinking.
I'll be away from home July 14-18, will check again when I get back.
