So I guess this all started Monday or Tuesday. I turn on the computer in the morning and I get to the screen where XP is loading and I can see the light in my mouse and my keyboards (both USB) start to come on, then they go out and the comptuer restarts. It then asks if I want to start in Safe Mode. I say no, start Windows normally and USUALLY it boots up and I have no problems the rest of the day. I say usually because sometimes I need to repeat the process one or two more times. Thing is, I haven't installed ANY new hardware in about two weeks and the last bit of software that was installed was a good five days before this started happening. I have no idea what could be causing this, is there any way I could watch as things boot up instead of the little bar thing on the XP screen, kind of the way you can in Linux? Anyone have a problem like this? I mean, its not the end of the world cause I can EVENTUALLY get onto Windows... but it is a bit frustrating.
