Here are some things I did prior to my system not getting into windows: I uninstalled Gamestop Comrade (didn't even know what it was.) I set my folder options to hide hidden system files. I rearranged my desktop icons and removed plenty. I installed Call of Duty 4 - World at War (which took FOREVER.) Before going to bed I restarted, and it got into windows partially. The desktop didn't load up. So I went to my task manager to start the process explorer.exe. After that, task manager stopped responding. I was able to get another task manager window up but it too stopped responding. I pressed cntrl alt del and selected shut down but nothing happened, so I forced a restart with the case button. Upon restart, after the XP loading screen the screen goes blank and nothing happens. When I attempt safe mode, it locks up after giveio.sys (normally the last file loaded when attempting safe mode) and nothing happens. I also tried "last known settings that worked." Any ideas?
