I thought that this could have been a virus but I already posted in those forums and they directed me here. Here is the old post http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/481988/bsod-and-i-cant-access-safe-mode/


I'm just copying and pasting some of what was said in the last forum.



The first time this happened I thought it was a one time thing but then it happened a week later and it restarted twice in the same day. I had scanned the computer and didn't find any viruses. I went into safe mode to test it and see if it would happen again. It didn't so I did a system restore instead of scanning for viruses in safe mode(how smart of me...ahem). 



The error code it would get is 




win32k.sys-Adress Bf956A02 base at BF800000, datestamp 50a1a161

this happens at random times. When I had used Adwcleaner I thought that part of the problem was gone but I started having it happen again after three weeks.



In safe mode it always freezes at mlti(0)disk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\agp440.sys 


Lately the desktop been making this high pitched noise that lasts for a few minutes at random times.



I have already used these programs.

TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool


Faberservice Scanner

Mini Toolbox

Eset Online Scanner

Blue Screenview

Windows Error Checking utlitiy

Safe Boot Key Repair




Mirosoft windows XP Professional Ver. 2002

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.40Hz 2.39 GHz,

2.00 GB of Ram


Brand OTC? It's a very old computer


I hope I explained everything correctly. If you need me to go into more detail just let me know. Thanks in advance
