When I turn on my laptop everything is distorted, the normal load screen has some funky colors in the background and some pre-loading stuff (think it's the bios) looks like it's bleeding (the letters have some lines above and below them) then the screen goes black and the computer wont finish loading (no windows load up sound and when using keyboard hotkeys I can't turn off my computer). However, it will load up in safe mode (though, it has the same text distortions till it's fully loaded) I don't know how else to explain it. I have a dell XPS m1710, nVidia graphics card (pretty sure it's 6800gts or something like that) and I've had a few problems with my display drivers already. However, this problem happened while trying to update from SP2 to SP3. I uninstalled SP3 and reinstalled SP2 but that didn't work. Any ideas?
