  1. Hi, Im using windows XP and duo core 2 and yesterday when i was playing the demo for C&C3 (i have the most upated drivers) the game crashed and quit itself, after that everything on my desktop was a lot bigger and the colour is weird (kind of grey, blue and purple) so i restart the computer and then everything was alright until the login screen: everything went black except the cursor. You can still select your user if u can find out where the icon is. I tried booting it on the safe mode and everything's normal, but in safe mode you can't use the internet. what has happened to my computer? if you need any more extra info on my computer u can tell me

    is this a newer version of Firefox? I don't know anything about it per se, but from what I have been reading of the 'net a great many people are having issues with the latest version.

    Do a Google and you will probably find your issue and possible work arounds.

    ok, things get worse after i did another system recovery... the loading screen is ok but after it it went back to the "DELL" loading screen, then the Windows XP loading screen, then back to DELL. it keep repeating itself, but everytime it did it asked me if i want to use Safe Mode, Last Good Configuration or Normal Windows XP, only Safe Mode worked, the other two will make the loading screen repeating, and then ask the same question

    Did you play any other game with your video card new drivers?

    Next time it boots into safe mode try this: Uninstall your video card drivers and try and reinstall them. By the way, what make and model is your video card?
