i have a toshiba laptop. i was trying to watch a movie and windows media player said i had to get the proper user rights. so i clicked yes. needless to say my pc crashed and now will only run in safe mode. if i try to run the system in normal it starts up loads everything normaly then the mouse freezes up and then the keyboard goes nuts and wont respond. the entire time the hard drive light is flickering like its trying to load some thing. just to see i let it run all night to see what it was trying to do and when i got up the next morning it was still trying to load. load what i dont know. i have ran spybot, symantic antivirus, tune up 2008 in safe mode and to no surprise it came up clean. I then took my laptop to a computer shop. after 2 days there the owner of the shop said he has never in his career seen a laptop do this and he cant fix it. Is there any hope for me???

Have you checked the Event Viewer in Safe Mode?
Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Expand the Windows logs category, and check the System log for errors between the time you started to boot up and the time that the system freezes. Then do the same thing for the Application log.

Let us know what you find and we'll move on from there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
