restart in safe mode(F8) does it still have 8? If not its probably a video driver

Tried the F8 option, still wont boot correctly...

Pretty sure a no go on the tiled, since PC crashed and booted back up with the screen like that; and I only get 6 full tiles and the 7th and 8th are cut off at the bottom.

I am somewhat of a novice...so please be patient with me...

yes'um

on the off chance I did tile on the restart (although it was giving me error issues on reboot), how do I turn it on/off? After almost 3 yrs with my laptop I have never done that...sigh, I feel like an idiot.

try uninstalling the graphics adapter from the device manager and reboot , let windows find or load a driver for it ,then if the os loads a standard vga driver and everything is ok download the latest mobile nvidia driver for your card , all the experts are busy at the moment but someone better qualified than me will be along shortly

lol...did that while sitting here reading the forums (I was trying to find a similar issue before posting), still gave me the same answer "windows could not repair your problem..."
And you are of great assistance, cross checking me, to make sure I am following procedure is a great value. =)
