When I try to boot into safe mode I hear a short single beep during the start up process then I get a blank black screen. This happens either way I try to launch. The only way out of the Black screen is to do a CTRL-ALT- DEL and get out through task manager.
I can run some diagnostics from task manager but I'm not sure they are running correctly since safe mode does not finish loading.

Once I get the safe mode problem fixed I will be looking for help with an explorer problem. My computer slows down to a crawl when I open task manager I find that windows explorer is using 97-100% of the system resources. Please let me know where best to post for these two problems.

If you know the date this problem first began use Windows System Restore to revert your system State to a date that predates the problem:

Windows restore from the taskmanager

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and from the Task Manager select "New Task".
Type in "CMD" without quotes.

Click ok.

From the Command Prompt type the following:

1. <c:\> is already displayed, if not type "cd\" and hit enter.

2.cd c:\windows\system32\restore and hit enter again

3.rstrui and hit enter
