hi all, my computer is playing up, and a terrible time to do it to. i have my masters thesis due in a fortnight and was going to start writing today!
anyways, i switch it on and it whirrs up and everything but only gets to my ati graphics card screen, this is the first one it usually shows before it moves on to all the rest and finally the windows screen. very strange. i can't get past the ati graphics screen page. Never had the problem before and it was working fine before i went to the library today.
anyone have any ideas on what is wrong?
thanks all.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Can you boot into safe mode...press f8 during boot up. Once into safe mode you can try using system restore selecting a restore point prior to the trouble.
