Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 3 GHz / 2045 MB
Installed a new graphics card and when I powered up the pc (Win Home XP) chkdsk strarted so I let it run and it came up with "replacing invalid security id with default security id". I have never seen that before and now I can not run any programs on the pc and the system tray does not show so I can work with the machine. Any recourse? Wonder why the message and function ran tha way?

It sounds like a driver issue. Have you tried booting in safemode and uninstalling the driver that came with you Graphics Card. Also try running the "Last know good configuration".

Thanks Ace...finally got the system tray to show up. Tried system restore and made sure it was turned on, and it was, but when I try it, I got this message: "system restore is not able to protect your computer. Restart the computer and try again". No help. I have also tried to Start many of the services and that does not work either. I removed the new adapter and used the old one and I still am right where I began. I am still at a loss why this thing started in chkdsk and apparently had the /f mode checked.
