I know this is a common problem but mine differs from everyone else. Here's the deal.. When I turn the computer on it never gets to the Login part. It just go to a black screen and stays there. Although, it works when I start it in Safe Mode. This problem started Friday, May 29, 2009. I've been trying to fix this since then. I'm Sh!T broke so I can't just put everything on a Ext. Drive and start over. FYI: I did NOT mod my PC in anyway. Its not a virus. I scanned it multiple times with AVG and Spyware Terminator. Although I did find quite a few Trojans. They were cleared up. I scanned it a couple more times and they're all gone. Still no help. No installation disk came with it to repair it, which doesn't matter because it won't read disks properly. My Drivers are up to date and working fine. Its NOT Windows Explorer, its running and its working fine. I did the whole "Start computer with last successful configuration." It got me in, but it became unbearably laggy and within 3 minutes a message came up that said "Windows encountered a problem. The system will shut down in one minute. Save your work." WTF?! Cleaned out my Temp Folder. Did the whole "Open msconfig, uncheck startup items, restart, blah blah blah" And lastly, because I know some idiot will say it, I'll answer your question before you say it. YES!! I did google it. Nobody seems to have the exact problem I have because my Safe Mode IS still working. [PLEASE READ THIS] I would appreciate your help, but, plz don't respond saying" I have the same problem, It's driving me crazy, I don't know what to do!" Thats how the topic gets lost in randomness. Don't respond if you don't have a suggestion.
