well this is a problem somewhat related to the topic I posted before.
I have narrowed the problem down somewhat, and its this its come down to. When i start up my windows 2000 in normal mode it starts up, loads some icons on the screen, then waits, goes black and restarts.
I can also choose to start it up in "last know good configuration mode", when doing this it doesnt suddenly shut down a second or so after its started up, but the colors and resolution are messed up, leaving me wanting to change it back to what's normal for me. When I do this, restart, and start win2k up normally, it again loads some icons on the screen, then waits and goes black and restarts. And I'm again back where i started from, loading win2k in "last known good configuration mode".
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I think I'm just gonna back up the stuff I got on the win2k partition, and then put a fresh copy of win2k on there, dunno whats messed up, do you?

thanks in advance,

bad video driver?

Can you load into safe mode

Load into last known good config, then reboot into safe mode. Load the most up to date drivers, then try again
