    Hello to all. My problem is somewhat odd, I was playing CS and all of a sudden the game just stops and i hear a strange keening sound and the system hangs. On subsequent reboots, windows will load at the winxp screen, then just reads the hard disk over and over, while emitting the same keening noise. After the winxp logo screen finishes loading everything, all I get is a black screen, and a constant hard drive light, as well as intermittent high pitched noise. I don't think I can give anyone a hijack this log, unless someone can tell me how to boot into safe mode from GRUB. This is a dual boot system with sabayon and win xp. the specs are:

    ASUS p5wdh DL
    1 Gb ram
    1 WD raptor 74
    1 WD caviar 320Gb (storage, but comes up as drive C, even
    though the raptor is the system drive)
    1 NEC dvd drive
    1 Plextor DVD-RW
    radeon x800xt
    500wt power

    both hard drives are SATA.

    If someone could tell me how to get into safe mode from GRUB that would be great, but any help would be appreciated.

    Hmm. this is strange. now everything works again, because I'm now posting from winxp, and I read the HJT. I'll post the log, but I wonder what happened.
