    start>run>type in 'msconfig'
    click 'boot.ini' tab, check 'safeboot' box
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    oops i was pressing it at the wrong time. its pissing me off i installed then on the first boot i changed the resolution and i think the refresh rate was dodgy so i restarted hoping it would sort itself but it wont start. safe mode reboots and vga just goes to a black screen. ive put it on last good configuration and the same thing. im gonna give it ten minutes then if it doesnt work its going out the window

















    or ill just reinstall. either way im pissed off. grrr

    [QUOTE=TheDave,11 November 2003 - 14:09] safe mode reboots

    think it does that until you tell it to 'normal boot'
    start>run>msconfig
    click 'general' tab and select 'normal boot' or 'normal mode' (cant remember)
    may need to go to 'boot.ini' tab again and deselect 'safeboot'
