Im having problems with my computer and its driving me insane! Please help me. Even as a techie, I cant figure this one out...
I was working on my computer when it froze. It has done that before so I shut it off and turned it back on.
Well I turned it back on to a Windows XP boot logo that faded in half way then stopped. The blue status bar didnt show up but the XP logo faded in about half way.
Anyways, I tried rebooting in safe mode to no avail.
I tried booting with the Last Known Configuration to no avail.
I tried Memtest86, alls good.
I tried Microsofts Mem Test, alls good.
I tried booting to Linux. That worked but then it froze too! I shut the computer off (because it froze) and booted it back up and now SuSE wont even load!
I tried booting the Windows XP CD so I could repair the installation but it wont load, it hangs on "Setup is starting Windows".
I tried updating the mobo bios.
I tried resetting bios config back to defaults.
The day before I just ran Spybot and Adaware with latest definitions.
When I try to boot to Safe mode it hangs on nv_agp.sys (that may or may not have anything to do with it).
I have an MSI K7N2G-L mobo, 2x 512MB Crucial DDR400(?) RAM, im trying to boot from a fairly new (3 month old maybe) Maxtor 60GB hard drive 7200RPM. Ive also got an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AGP video card, USB mouse and PS/2 keyboard. Two network cards (ones wireless, ones wired - both Netgear), a standard MSI bracket that gives you boot info, a USB 2.0 PCI card, and a PCI card that I plug two more IDE drives into. I have two CD drives (Samsung and TDK VeloCD burners). The PCI card that I can plug IDE devices into has a Zip Drive and a third hard drive (old 20GB in FAT32). The mobo has 2x Maxtor 60GBs (~3 months) exact same model.
And I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO.
Somebody please help me get back up on my feet ASAP. I just opened a few business accounts yesterday and now CRASH.
ALL comments are appreciated.
Thanks a million,
