New software? Hardware? Removal of Software/Hardware?
We need more info on this, good sir. I'm sure we'd be glad to help.
Yes, My friend - I did - AT LENGTH in my previous posts that ALSO went unanswered.
HOWEVER, to help move this along, I will give you everything:
The computer was custom built about 2 years ago. Since then much of it has been upgraded. I will try to add dates as I go

RME AUDIO DRIVERS

COREL VIDEO STUDIO 12 - WIN 7 COMPATIBLE
PC PITSTOP OPTIMIZE 3.0
TREND MICRO INTERNET SECURITY PRO
vIDEOlan vlc vIDEO PLAYER
NOTE - I FINALLY GOT IT STARTED IN SAFE MODE BUT THE WINDOWS SECURITY CENTER SERVICE CAN'T BE STARTED.
THE LAST THREE TIMES I TRIED TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE, THE COMPUTER CRASHED AS SOON AS IT STARTED.
PRESENTLY - IN THE DEVICE MANAGER, I HAVE TWO YELLOW EXCLAMATION MARKS - BOTH ON THE FIRST TWO HID COMPLIANT CONSUMER CONTROL DEVICES. I AM NOT SURE WHAT THOSE ARE.
1 MORE THING - I noticed that, when I went into the BIOS today, that the onboard audio was enabled. I had disabled it earlier because I am using the RME card.
AND FINALLY - After I finished the last sentence, I tried to reboot the computer by logging out of safe mode and restarting - as it was shutting down, the screen went black and not I am typing on this computer, looking at the black sceen of the other computer, which, by the way, is still running with no video.
This does, very much, suck.
PLEASE - PLEASE answer this. Thi sis the third time I am posting for help.
