its full capabilities.

Safe-Mode and Safe-Mode with Networking are the same but for the services and drivers for the NIC are being loaded /enabled.

For Future reading if you're interested | Which drivers get loaded in safe mode?
Good Day Yoyo155,

Thanks for the clarification....I will pick up a new GPU and see what happens and post the outcome here...Also thanks for the link it made for some interesting reading on Safe Modes.

Good Day YoYo155,

As you had suspected the GPU was in fact the culprit a friend helped me perform a functionality test by switching our GPU's and mine was in fact defective as it behaved exactly the same on his system. Strangely enough when we placed his GPU in my system were getting "Bad Image errors in a dll directory (please forgive me as I did not write it down). The error was corrected by running a utility called "combofix". Long Story short my new GPU will arrive Monday and I'm currently using the Intel (motherboard GPU).

Thank you YoYo155 and the entire community for all your assistance.

Respectfully,
Mikali
