Hi all. I have an ABS laptop with the following specs: Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz Microsoft XP Home Edition 1.00 GB of RAM 60 GB HD Space at 7200 rpm Video Card: ATI Radeon 9600 Mobile etc. and so forth Anyways, I am having major computer trouble. Here's the deal: Upon startup, the system either freezes at the "Windows XP" logo, or proceeds to bring me to the login screen; after I enter my login information, I can see my icons and background for about a split-second before the screen goes black. I can hear the rest of the loading process finish in the background, leading me to believe it's a display screen problem... Starting up the computer in safe mode, I opened the event viewer to see what the hell was going on. There were several (and by several, I mean nine or ten) error logs in a row, the most pertinent being: - A bunch of individual drivers failed to load because a "device attached to the system is not functioning" (Event ID: 7001) - The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: Fips IPSec MRxSmb NetBIOS NetBT Processor RasAcd Rdbss SAVRT SAVRTPEL Tcpip (Event ID: 7026) System Restore was turned off in order to solve an earlier problem that I had awhile back, so that isn't really an option. Disk Check reads no errors on any of the system parts (as usual ). Any other measures I should try? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch.
