Ok heres the deal. I was watching this divx "clerks" yesterday...after it finished..I got a sudden sound and the system hung up. Ok ..this freezing has happened before..so I restart xp pro. Ok...its passing diagnostics...goback 3 menu....goes to the black windows xp logo screen.....goes black again and prepares to start. But wait. The monitor goes into hibernation mode and nothing happens. I try to use goback and revert my harddrive to a previos day. doesnt work. I start up in safe mode...use my backup registry file to load all backup registry keys. Doesn't work. I try to do a trojan scan, no trojans and I try to scandisk and nothing turns up. I'm really not sure whats going on...since reverting in goback basically rewrites every file to what it was before the problem happened...except this doesn't do anything. I'm confused. In fact everything works fine in safe mode...thats how im typing this message as we speak. I need some help!

Hi,

Try running http://housecall.trendmicro.com
It is a free online antivirus scanner.

Hi,

When you were watching your Divx clip, did you have to install any new software to view it? (e.g player, DirectX....)

Did you recently upgrade any drivers? (e.g. video drivers...)

Can you boot up using Diagnostics Startup Mode? (Of course you'll have to set this in Safe-Mode)

Have you tried WinXP's System Restore?
