I have a 2 1/2 yo Acer Aspire X1700 PC with a Vista 64-bit OS which has been very good to me. I shut it down yesterday like usual. Today I boot it up, get to the desktop and nothing works. The cursor moves, but that's it! Left/right click on anything and nothing happens except the hourglass works forever and tumbles up and down when the 'sand' runs out.. The icon in the lower right corner tells me I'm not connected to the Internet. I have to push the button to shut the computer off. When I reboot, because I physically shut it down, the option screen appears asking me if I want to boot up in Safe Mode. When I do, the computer works normally and is connected to the internet. If I shut down and reboot in normal mode, I have the same problem. Can anyone help? Thank you for any enlightenment you might have.
