I have recently used Driver Genius to update some drivers and had a power outage while installing the video card drivers. After the power was restored I could not boot normally (it would go blank after the loading screen goes away before the log on screen comes up.) So I boot into safe mode and install the drivers there, and then restart. It worked after about 12 tries.... Now, it will not load normally at all anymore.

While checking the system error logs, I find that (from 9/26/09 - 9/27/09) I am missing quite a few catalog files in the "system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}" directory. I also have many DCOM errors...

Here is an exported list (.txt format) of the errors filtered from 9/25/09 - 9/27/09:

Also while running chkdsk, this is what comes up:

I have ran chkdsk before but I have never ran into anything that looked like that.. Should I run "chkdsk /f"?

Here's another possible culprit... Leftover video card drivers.... While I thought that my nVidia card somehow fried when the power went out, I put my ATI card in and tried to install the drivers for it, but to no avail... Oddly enough, the only way I could get it to work was by manually installing the drivers. While doing an automated install, I received the error message "Severe: Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit."

What could be wrong???

I believe I have found the problem... In order for me to boot normally, I must disable my display adapter (ATI) in Device Manager....

I have tried it with both nVidia and ATI cards and I must disable both in order to boot correctly.. I installed them seperatly so there wouldn't be any conflicts.... How am I supposed to get my video card working If I can't enable it...

Try to uninstalled the drivers all of them then for the video cards and take it out and runt he system for 30 seconds then insert the video card back in the system. load up windows, then installed them again, see if that will help
