I'll go through what happened step by step. I was last on my computer at around 1pm today. I woke up early today so I decided to take a nap. It goes into standby by itself and I keep napping. Throughout my nap (which was very resting), I heard my computer (it is a laptop) making a loud sound with the fans. I thought it was doing an AVG scan and that's why it was like that. Anyway around 3 hours later, I go on the computer. I move the mouse, I see the main computer screen. The problems are that there are 2 "black" mini icons in my system tray, and I could not enter the start menu. My screen was also flashing black every 3 seconds or so.
I turn off the computer, turn it back on, and notice that at Windows startup there are blue "streaks" whereas normally I'd see the Windows logo and have a black background. After seeing this I try to do system restore, I get a dark blue screen saying that there seems to be a problem, and I should do chkdsk f/ when I turn my computer on. I can't get my computer on in regular mode, it will just have the blue streaks, then it turns to black screen. I can turn it on in safe mode however, and I get some weird green "matrixy" looking kind of background, but seems to work alright on Safe mode. I press run, I type in chkdsk f/ , it opens up, but it says it cannot run and has a NTFS error or something. It offers to run at next startup, so I press Y, but it never happens (regular startup still has black screen, while safe mode startup doesnt have chkdsk f/ run).
I tried system restore, which doesnt seem to do much. I also have SP3 on the computer. Any more information needed just ask. Thank you for your time.
