it seems like none of my programs will work properly and my sound drivers are messed up as well. I have my old drivers on my external hard drive but my computer isn't recognizing it and bringing it up for me to access it. am I screwed since system restore was turned off somehow?
I was on my computer, self built with windows xp service pack 2, and all of the sudden without warning, I received the blue screen saying there was a hardware issue and it has to be shut down, then it disappears very quickly and restarts. It kept restarting itself before I could do anything. I fiddled around with it a bit and managed to get it back up now but its starting up without the programs I had on start up before (its starting random programs) and its not giving me any internet or showing any internet connections. It also changed the theme I had to classic xp which now is the only option. My system restore got turned off somehow and I cannot do any type of restore. The whole computer is only about a month and a half old. What do I do to fix all these problems?
I have an AMD Athlon 64 4600+, ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 Motherboard, EVGA 8600 graphics card, hitachi 250 GB sata hd, gskill 2 gb ram, all new and have worked for about a month and a half
I have not installed any new hardware or software lately.
