Windows, Vista 64, acer slimline desktop.


My computer was running and on the screen saver and when I went to wake it up there was only a black screen and my mouse in the middle tracking around.  I tried crt-alt-del, nothing changed.   I couldn't wake it up and get back to my log on screen.  I pushed the power button and it wouldn't turn off I had to pull the plug.  I waited and restarted and it said bad checksum date/time.  I replaced the battery on the motherboard and restarted and set the date and time and it asked me if I wanted to start in recovery, safe or normal.  It's done this before and loaded just fine after a restart.  I chose normal but this time it hung on the load screen green bar.  I walked away and came back 5 mintues later, still hung.


I'm beyond certain that the battery is just a coincidence and something else is going on.


I pulled the plug, waited, restarted and it asked me if I wanted to start in recovery or normal (no safemode anymore).  I chose recovery.  It went to the green bars then to a black screen with just my mouse, like it looked when it started all this.  I waited 20 minutes, still nothing.  I pulled the plug, waited, restarted and f8'd to get it into safemode and it loaded drivers and the last driver it loaded was aswRvrt.sys  It hung there until I just pulled the plug yet again and decided I need help.


I googled and found this


I do have avast and I haven't restarted in over a week, maybe more, but I don't get how that information is helpful, so I was hopuign someone here could help or explain.  I can't get my disc drive to open and my computer didn't come with boot discs anyway so that's out.





Edit: After letting it cool to room temperature I attempted another safemode reboot.  This is where it paused:




I tried a normal reboot and let it just sit and watched what it did and I got a BSOD but the numbers seem to go beyond the visual area of my monitor.
