A friend has asked me to have a look at his PC. On startup it only offers to start with last known good configuration or to start in safe mode.If you choose last known G.C. it does nothing and if you choose safe mode it reels off about 50 lines all reading "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\" followed by examples such as ntfs.sys-ksecdd.sys-ndis.sys-sisagp.sys-mup.sys-disk.sys-classpnp.sys-sr.sys- etc,etc. Is there any hope for it without a reformat as he has some essential files on it that he really needs to save.
had the same problem on thursday, pc would not boot, even to safe mode!! went into bios, found out the graphics card had switched to pci!! and the card was an agp!! changed it back, after trying different things for a while!! run an avast anti-virus (thorough) and found one!!
blighter got to me!! anyway try your bios, i had done everything possible, totally lost the plot for a while!! this has never happened to me before, bloody things drive me potty!! hope this helps!!
