    The boot hard drive may be bad...

    Try booting into Safe Mode

    tap F8 once/second until you get a B&W screen - - chose Safe Boot

    No that doesnt work. I had it normal a few days ago but then one day I went on it, it was on classic mode

    ?? Do you mean it can not boot into Safe Mode? If so, you have real issues. I did not expect it to solve your symptom by itself.
