After the last reboot, all icons, menus, start options, etc. disappeared from the screen - in regular AND safe mode (yes that is frustrating). Actually for some time, the system tends to need resetting when turning on because it will sose the monitor signal entirely. You know, I knew that was a problem that would haunt me someday and yet I ignored it...
Anyway, does this sound like a graphics card problem? Will uninstalling the drivers-card/reinstalling the drivers-card be a good next step? If so, anyone got any handy ideas on how to do this?
Any help, ideas, places to go, suggestions or whatever would be greatly appreciated.
I can get to most icons on my desktop through the run/brows fnctn of task manager, but not all, and not without a ton of *.dll errors (for instance when I hit the firefox icon, it does come up but I have to click through a dozen google related dll errors). On last check w/spyware, spybot, adaware and norton, no virus/spyware detected - system has been armed to the teeth since day one.
