The games I ordered (refer other thread here ) arrived this morning...yay. I turned the PC on only to be greeted by the Safe Mode option screen.
Doesnt matter what option I choose, all that happens is a blue screen for a fraction of a second followed by a reboot, then back to Safe Mode option screen.
I have a RAID1 setup. On one of the screens that displays during intial stages of bootup it shows the individual hardrives and these both appear ok, however above the list of individual drives is a line (I cant remember what it says exactly) but this line states that RAID1 is "verifying" and the word "verfiying" is yellow.
I am picking it is a hardware failure as opposed to software (but thats just my guess). The PC was working fine last night and shut down fine as far as I am aware.
Can only think of two things I did/that happened yesterday could possibly be an issue.
1) had a powercut. I have an UPS & surgeprotector. So I honestly dont think this could be a problem.
2) I installed a piece of software called Coyote video converter. It installed a toolbar called 'Dealio'. I turned off the toolbar in IE8 and uninstalled it from FF3.
Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16GHz
Asus P5QPro Mobo
Nvidia GeForce 8800GT
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
Anybody got any ideas as to the issue?
