    My best guess is that it is not only Safeboot that is turned on in System Restore.


    While in System Restore, click on the General tab and make sure that the Startup Selection has a dot next to the option that says Normal Setup - load all device drivers and services. Click apply, and when prompted to restart the computer, let it restart the computer.

    There are some other ideas I have about what could be wrong, but first try this. If the problem still persists, please post back.

    You can access System Restore by clicking on Run in the start menu and typing in MSCONFIG (Just in case you were accessing it another way.)

    Good luck :)

    I would go into the BIOS and have it started by the IDE.
