Yesterday my computer started acting up. It works fine in safemode, but I cannot get it to operate at all in regular boot. It loads fine, but if I try to do anything, ie, open control panel, open a browser etc, that application will not open or respond.
Also, CNTL ALT DELETE does not work. The screen goes black after a few minutes it gives me the error, "failure to display security..."
I called HP and they seem to think its a hardware issue, but I thought I would get a second opinion.
Computer is 1.25year old HP ProBook 4530s. i3 2.2Ghz, 8GB, Windows Home Premium 64 bit. Onboard graphics
So far I have tried -
1. Startup repair - no issues found
2. System restore - in dos reported error 0x8000ffff failure. Upon entering windows it said, "SUCCESS"
3. DSKCHK - 0 bad sectors
4. Ran malwarebytes and avanti
5. HP thought it was video card - so I disabled video card and booted into windows (non safemode) to see if it would have same issues without video card - it did.
I dont know what else to try. Any thoughts?
