in the past couple of days i've been having some issues:
1) every restart i make (or shut down) begins with a BSOD. then the computer starts anew, i get the "safe mode" options and i can boot normally.
2)i think that because of the BSOD i get i can not uninstall or install anything that requires a reboot in the middle so trying to install the new ATI drivers really messed up everything and now i cant install these drivers at all. uninstalling them took a lot of googling and messing with the registry but that didnt help installing them any better.
when i try to uninstall or install the drivers the software locks up in the middle and doesnt budge. if i try installing in safe mode i get an error message telling me somehting like "detection programs error" or something. the installation locks up at the part where the installer is trying to figure out what hardware or drivers i have. it gets stuck in the "detecting graphic hardware" part.
3) when the computer boots up i get a message telling me i had an unexpected crash, of course. but i also have an error message telling me:
explorer.exe - driver not ready.
the driver is not ready for use; it's door may be open. please check drive a: and make sure that a disk is inserted and the door is close.
that's the message. whether i disable the a: drive in the bios or not it doesnt help. i've been told it's a virus but NOD32 didnt detect anything.
if i press "continue" or "try again" or "cancel" the message pops up again after a few seconds. i cant get rid of it no matter what.
please, help a man out.
what i tried to do thus far is reset the bios to the defaults (within the bios. didnt remove the battery or anything) and i tried checking for viruses with NOD32 and while it did find some stuff, it put them in quarantine and that didnt help.
since i really need the latest ATI drivers i've been trying to uninstall and reinstall them over and over again. in safe mode or not. didnt help.
