storm shut the computer down before i could and now i can't get the computer to start up. it ask me to start up in normal mode and i press enter and it goes thru it's thing and goes right back to the start windows normally. WHAT DO I DO?
Sounds like registry corruption. System restore should do the trick. Gets more complicated if you cant boot to safe mode. And you probably can't.
If not, try this:http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
You have to build it yourself, but its free. It includes a utility to use system restore from the boot cd. You can select restore dates and all.
