Some time ago, after doing the SP3 (3, I seem to recall) for W7, I noticed my bootup went haywire. I'd get to the windows logo screen, then the faint blue, and that's it. I understand there were some issues with this service pack, and I removed the install. Everything seemed good, but the problem came back after several days.
I attempted to get back via a restore point, and that, too, worked for awhile; no longer.
The last thing I can think of, is an attempted load of my son's game; bargain priced game, didn't notice it was designed for 98/ME/XP until after attempting to install. Hung up on install, keyboard frozen, install menu turned
dull," and that's it. CNTRL-ALT-DEL to blast the install didn't work, either.
I rebooted, and ever since, the above-issue; whatever I've tried, can't get in via normal mode.
When I boot, whether in normal or safe mode, my keyboard takes awhile to indicate it is "on," and once the light comes on, if attempting in normal mode, I type the password (blind - blue-black screen, faintly illuminated; what I type can't be seen), but all that happens is I see the desktop - no programs, incl. explorer, running (once again, this is if I attempt in normal mode).
I went through all the F8 "repair your computer" options - and they all say, the computer is fine. I did run SCF/Scannow, and it said there were some corrupted files, but couldn't fix them.
I can get into safemode with networking. Kaspersky won't update in safe mode though, and, well, just a drag. I very much appreciate whatever help could be provided. Thanks.
