1 laptop , 1 desktop. Same problem
laptop: will load to the log in screen . load the desktop then after a few mins crash to a black screen then i need to hard power it down to get it to boot back up. once is recovers i get a windows error report that says
Local ID: 1033
I've tried system restore to no luck , PC works solid in safe mode. removed nortons. I could not locate anything in the event logs other then some network services erroring out. I have the Hard Drive doing a chkdsk via another pc atm in a drive tray.
Desktop : Fresh install of windows . Auto loads to the desktop Does the exact same thing . Screen will go black then it either needs to be power cycled or it may reboot on its on. When it boots back up i get the exact same error message
Local ID: 1033
The desktops hard drive makes a lot of grinding noise like the platter is scrapping agains the drive wall. i'm in the process with it booting off a OEM vista disk to run a check disk on it as well.
I dont believe both of these PC's are having hard drive issues but i'm unsure atm as i wait for the disk checks to get done.
The laptop works great in safe mode , havent tried the desktop yet.
Not sure if they both have some boot loader virus or not. I havent run combofix,hijack,malwarebytes or spybot yet on the laptop.
Any thought or insight would be greatly appreicated!
EDIT* Both check disks didnt find anything out of the norm.
