First of all,
Can you get into safe mode now?
I have one question. Do you no how to go into your BIOS?
Well, i would try changing your boot sequence and make your hard drive #1. Just see if that works. Reboot your
computer and press "F2" to get into the BIOS
Just give this a try and see if that works.
Yesterday, I was using Internet Explorer, looking around for some things and all the sudden, my computer reboots on it's own. It went to my bios and made a weird noise. After a few seconds of idling, it started ..but then it went to this screen saying that my hard drive had some kind of error or something. This has happened before, so I skipped it. It was about to boot into windows, but then stopped and rebooted again. This time, after checking my memory, it asked if I wanted to reboot regularly, so I did. Rebooted on its own. It had a few options, including "Reboot Using Last Working Configurations" or whatever and Reboot into Safe mode. None of these worked.
So today, I bought a copy of Windows Home. Before, I was running Windows XP, but I didn't have $300 to buy it. So everything was fine, reformating went kind of quick, windows installed, all that. The problem I'm having now is that, whenever I reboot, it goes to a black screen and after 3 minutes, these little squares appear at the bottom of the screen. Within a few minutes, it looks like its loading something. It takes almost 20 minutes to finish this, then it just loads Windows.
How do I fix this? Everything was installed from the CD. Whenever it reboots, it asks if I wanna reboot from the CD.. Should I do this or no? It's becoming a big pain, waiting 20 minutes to restart :/ Any help would be appreciated.
