    Hey guys, my computer has been working perfectly until today. When I boot windows up in normal mode I get a blue screen and then the computer restarts. Failsafe mode works just fine.. any ideas what may be causing this?

    Thx in advance.

    A corrupt driver could be a problem.

    im assuming safe mode wont work either. If that is the case ... insert the windows installation cd and make sure your boot order is cdROM drive first ..not DVD drive or floppy.

    Then go to repair installation.

    put the OS CD in
    boot to it
    go to repair
    when the dos prompt comes up type chkdsk /r

    That will go threw and rapair anything .. If that don't work, get a copy of Knppix put it on a cd, boot it, then get anything you need off of the drive for backup. After that do a reformat ..
