    First started with screen saver (use cute default of bubbles) issue; would receive "cannot run screen saver ... video card" error instead of the screen saver engaging;

    Would get black screen / recover message upon starting computer;
    (has happened 3 times over past month or so);

    Occasionally would need to restart because keyboard quite working (mouse would still work however);

    Started computer on Friday and received license expiry messages - turns out date/year was set to 2400 and something (manually changed date and rebooted);

    Started computer today and entire Outlook Calendar is wiped clean! (OHMIGAWD all my business appointments are gone!!)

    I use AVG (licensed) Professional version and run SpyBot regularly.
    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Run chkdsk on your hard drive.
