Well this all started last night after i got call of duty 2 (dvd version) Im hoping these problems are all related in someway so please help.
First i had my FEAR(dvd game) in and i took it out of the drive and now things started going wrong..
I put CoD2 in to install the menu screens comes up with the install and all that so i click install and nothing happens then 2 seconds later the menu screen disapears......I then try my start button in the toolbar and it starts flashing randomly and the window keeps flashing also so i cant click anything!! all my programs were like this if i tried to click on a dropdown menu it just disapeared after and my IM windows disapeared also so i couldnt ask my friends for any help. I then restarted with the dvd still in get the normal beep in the post black screen...then i get to my login window and my comp starts beeping like crazy after like a minute i click login and the beeping stops but then i still see my desktop is all messed...still cant open start menu windows continued flashing and the CoD2 menu screen didnt come up so i maybe figured it was the dvd.
Part 2 very odd happenings- I then decide what the heck to stick my fear dvd back in and see if it fixes my comp And guess what!!! it worked my comp went back to normal but also on this start up my toolbar went back to the old gray windows format and same with the windows (i had a custom xp skin) okay everything seems fine fear menu comes up.....i dont click on anything then about 4 min later the menu disapears and my comp starts going on flashing and stuff again!!!! Now i restart once more no beeps at login screen cept the windows login sound gets cut off and my windows are still flashing so i still havent figured this out i guess. Then i put in bf2 (CD) get the menu comp works for a few min until the menu disapears! once again! and it goes scitzo again.
Then i gave up for the night and tried this a few more times today exchanging cds and even trying CoD2 again. I managed to get it to install somehow but then once i got to the game screen (running ingame) i clicked to start a mission and my comp once again froze up so i tried click alt tab and all that and nothing worked i couldnt access my task manager because once i clicked it it disapeared so i restarted. Then after a few more tries i decided to change my cd drive for my other one. Start up and i got the beeping again at the login. And now i am here with bf2 cd in my drive somehow working. Once the menu for bf2 came up i just exited and now my comp works and now im afraid to take cd out or restart again! AHHHH THIS IS A CURSE FROM FEAR!!!!!
I have a feeling its not the cd drive and i dont think its fear or bf2 because this nvr happened b4 it might be cod2 defect but i dont think it would do this much damage.
