|i did a reboot on my computer just to clear out any memory leaks like i do daily, however today something happened.|
it boots fine, no problems what soever, until i login to my windows account. i select the account, login, and it looks fine for a second. then, after about 3 seconds, my video goes wavy. the best way to describe it is the most prodominate color of my background mixed with black, then streaked across my computers screen.
my computer has no option to boot to safe mode that i can find (f2 opens bios config, f11 opens my choice to boot from cd, floppy, or hd) so i cant really try to boot it that way to see if it's a software issue. has anyone experianced something similar to this or know for sure if it's software or hardware problems?
basic comp specs (as i'm typing this from my work laptop).
windows xp media center sp2
geforce 7300 gs
boot up programs:
everest system information
audio and video drivers and control software
logitech drivers for g15 keyboard and g5 mouse
trying to find out tomorrow if i need to pick up a new vid card, or if it's a software issue that i'll have to fix.
