lol sorry didnt know any other way to put it, right now i am using my linux installation, thankfully learned how to get softmodem working in it, well anyway, to the problem. for soem reason, whenever i boot windows, it gets to the desktop and starts all the background programs and stuff fine but if i try to start anything, the computer freezes. if i try to boot safe mode, the computer will automatically restart after i click on a user account to start. i tried doing the none destructive repair with the XP disk but for some reason it came up with the same problem again. ihave the ntfs driver installed in linux so i can access all my fiels on here. please someone help me fix this. i cant reformat, it takes forever for me to get it back the way i like lol. any help is appreciated. thanks in advance.
