So, my wife and I are laying in bed, and I hear a *Bleep!* (windows pop-up error sound) and the computer restarts itself.
It got back to the user screen, and I just clicked shutdown, because I didn't have time to mess with it.
This morning, I try to boot it, and it reaches the desktop graphic, but the desktop icons never show up, the start bar and lower right icons never show up, and the windows intro music never plays.
So, I shut it down since I had to go to work.
So, my wife calls me at work, and I suggest to try and start it in Safe Mode. I had her run an error checking status on it, and it says it cannot until next boot up. Well, she's already run error check, and it says everything is 10-4.
She's stated that if you try to start it in Safe Mode, there's a huge list on a black DOS-type background with all the windows files on it.
I'll see if I can't get more information.
Do we need to format, or is there anything else we can try?
