When I start my computer it goes to the windows start up screen and jumps back and forth before a screen will come up. It gives me the option of starting up in safe mode but when I start in safe mode, it acts likes it is trying to start but then it goes right back to the same startup screen for safe mode. If you leave the computer alone it takes 3 or 4 hours but it will eventually go to the desktop. Then when I try to go online or do any type of other work, the screen will go blank and start this process all over again. I have tried the system restore, none of the highlighted dates will work. I have tried last known good configuration, nothing. I have also tried booting up from a restore cd, it won't boot up from the cd and goes straight back to the startup screen. Anybody out there with any suggestions as to what may be wrong, I would greatly appreciate the help. Any information that I have not included that you may need, please let me know. The last thing I did was try to install a Belkin wireless router. Not sure if this is what the problem is or not, I've already uninstalled the router.

Thanks very much,

If you want to use the Restore disk you need to go into bios and change the boot order so the CD is first.

You may have uninstalled the router, but did you delete the conection you created when you installed it?
