    It's been fine, but recently on boot, it's been wanting to scan the disk for errors (always shut down correctly), and now, even that message and even Win splash screen are garbled. Desktop boots fine.

    Complete up-to-date Norton AV scans and disk Dr. all OK, up-to date AdAware, Spybot, and Spyware Xterminator all OK.

    Also tried to Sys Restore, and it won't. What the hell is up with that? I've never been successful with it yet....

    wanting to scan indicates an incorrect shutddown so does a corrupted restore
    to get restore working again
    start again by turning it off and then back on
    run chkdisk

    If you run the scan for errors, does it still prompt you to scan after reboot?

    it sometimes asks for another scan.

    chkdisk never finds anything.
