I would like a quick concensus before either trying to fix the problem myself if it is software or send it to the shop for an expensive hardware check. I have XP.
When I boot up my computer it starts up until the point when the blue windows screen appears for a millisecond then it shuts down with an exception, and then restarts itself ad inifinitum. Unfortunately it happens so fast I cant write down what the exception says.
In safe mode it starts fine and can run programs.
I suspect it is either a corrupted driver or a driver that is trying to access a bit of bad hardware. Any other possibilities and is there a site that tells me how to test this? I have tried rolling back the computer with system restore to when it worked fine, so that should have fixed any rotten drivers? I doubt it is a virus/trojan as I use lots of protection and have run the standard virus checkers etc which come up nada.
