Hello mrsstanford, Posted Image Welcome to the forums!
Posted Image. My name is Biscuithd and I will be assisting you with your Computer issues.

I know how upsetting it can be when one's computer is experiencing problems. I will try to help get things squared away. For a start please make sure that you...

  • Carefully read every post completely before doing anything.
  • If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, do NOT continue! Stop and ask!
  • Do not run any other scans or other software on your computer unless asked as it may make this repair more difficult.
Ok, let's get started. In order to figure out what is wrong with your computer, I'll need a diagnostic scan. Since your computer seems to be unable to function in normal mode, let's see if it will be more cooperative in Safe Mode. If you will, please perform the following steps.

  • Please re-start your computer and start tapping F8 repeatedly
  • If this is successful, you will see the Advanced Boot Options screen with the following three options:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command prompt

Please try to start in Safe Mode with Networking (1.)

If Safe Mode with Networking works, then proceed with the following steps. If it does NOT work, restart the computer and try Safe Mode. If Safe Mode works, write back and tell me and I'll coach you on the next steps.
