Hey guys, Ive posted here a long time ago about virus problems, and I am back to ask a question about computers.

I had purchased an alienware computer in 2005 and not only has it been constantly giving me problems but I have had to install the OS several times.

Now, just today I was playing Garrys Mod, making a cool spaceship....Yea its really cool, haha, anyways, right in the middle my computer just shut off, then turned on by itself. Everything was fine, until it got to the user log in screen and it was just black, no mouse, nothing. It was still functional because when I used the arrow keys to log in it worked fine, but all my icons were invisible the start menu was invisible and only the desktop background was visible. I restarted the computer several times and it didnt work. Can anyone help me out? I dont want to get rid of all my programs.



Thanks,
Soheil

Also I have tried system recovery and it requires me to put in a floppy disk, but none came with the computer.

In Safe Mode, right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.
