will it start in safe mode?

if this is a new problem you can try a system restore from safe mode.

yeah it will start in safe mode but it will not let me go to last know good configuration. this is a new problem as far as i know but i am not sure because i usually keep it running all of the time. after completely shutting the computer down several times and then doing a cold boot a lot of times it will finally boot up normally. so i just try to keep it on until i can resolve this issue. i will try system restore and see if that helps.
thanks, gary
