Anyhow, my notebook has been acting funny for a couple of days. It seems to only want to run in Safe Mode (I always choose Safe Mode with Networking so I can get online). If I try to shut it down and restart in Normal mode, the Windows screen comes up (the black screen with a little bar at the bottom)...and that's it. It'll run like that unless I shut it off, then cut it back on and choose Safe Mode.
Even in Safe Mode, there are problems. If I have more than 2 windows open, it'll freeze up. In Normal Mode, its the same thing. I don't recall any changes I've made recently, so I have no idea what to do. I even tried to do a System Restore....same 'Windows' screen came up and just ran for about 45 minutes.
My friend mentioned something about maybe some drivers were broken, but I checked and none of my drivers have errors.
I'm running the Windows XP OS, and I have a Gateway Mini Notebook, so there's no CD-ROM drive.
I've only gotten the blue screen of death once, it was early last night, and I couldn't read the whole thing, but it was a KERNEL error.
I have AVG 8.0 and Malware Bytes. I've run both and they've come back as me having a clean system. My firewall is currently not active (I'm just using the standard Windows Firewall).
I'm clueless and getting really frustrated, as this is the only computer I have and I have 3 finals projects I have to get done by Monday! Please help
