    I can't run outside of safe mode. I had this problem a couple of days ago here's a link to that post.

    Anyhow the problem seemed to rectify itself when the errored plug and play bios extension vanished from my device listing. I'm not sure how that happened. Since then everything has been working fine aside from having to reset my network connection twice in order to establish a connection. This afternoon I had to reset the connection, and had to do a reboot. It didn't boot up. So I started it back up in safe mode. Sure enough plug and play bios extension is back on the device listing with an error. I've tried to roll back and update the driver, but cannot. I was able to uninstall the driver altoghter, wich didn't help, but didn't seem to harm anything either. MS support didn't have anything usefull I could see. When I googled it I noticed a reference to alcohol 120. I have alcohol 52, and tried to uninstall, but could not because my windows installer wouldnt run in safe mode. Any thoughts?
    Thanks
    Paul

    I tried all the registries lance sent me again becuase that's the only thing that I think I did before I was able to run windows last time. I'd like to get some thoughts before I format, or throw the whole case in the pool.
    Like before, I was able to boot in safemode with networking. I shortly lost the ability to network. Now my disk drives don't recognize inserted disks. I dunno
    Thanks
