Hello everyone, dunno if this has been posted elsewhere, but im having frequent trouble whenever im loading up vista on my machine. i have a Gateway MT3707 laptop, with 1.5gb of ram T2060 dual core Intel Processors 1.6GHz. Vista Home Premium. what its doing: On startup, it will fail to load personalized settings and crash the desktop, leaving me to use task manager alone to run programs, everything else is disabled and i can use my mouse/keyboard and task manager, just no start menu, bg, themes, network, or anything else for that matter. Then upon trying to shutdown, it will hang on shutdown, but still the blue loop will do its revolutions...which forces me to hold the powerbutton down to force shutdown The other issue that complements this problem...: upon startup after above and gaining back my ability to have a GUI, vista will cause both cores to shoot up and stay at 100% usage no matter what i close... anything besides a format i can do?
