    I've had this laptop for about 2 years, and recently (about 2 weeks ago) it's been very slow, freezing if I start chrome or other software, delay going into system options when I click ctrl+alt+delete. But today, it froze again and it wouldn't budge so I held my power button to turn it off and restarted it, and shortly after it booted up, it froze and the mouse wouldn't even bother to move or click anything, everything was frozen. I've tried restarting several times already but it still freezes, although safe mode works for me which is what I'm using right now, I've already used the "Last Known Settings that worked" feature and it can boot when I do a selective boot with just the drivers. But normal boot settings do not work.

    My specs are:
    Windows 7
    4.00 GB RAM
    Intel Core i5
    nVIDIA Geforce 310m video card

    I have a Sony Vaio laptop with the model # VPCF120FD, so you can check that out if it helps.

    Furthermore, I've ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool which showed no errors at all after it was fully completed. So I'm quite unsure what to do because I attend a laptop program at school and regularly use my laptop for work. Any help regarding this would be much appreciated. I made sure my drivers are all updated by using Driver Genius Professional which I've had for quite a while.

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I've also tried to use system restore to many restore points but it just boots up and gives me the message of how it has failed.

    I know what last known settings that worked is, but I have never seen selective boot and normal boot there. I see that in msconfig. Personally, in msconfig, I always have mine set to selective boot, because you don't need every single thing loaded on boot. Selective startup allows for just the necessary things.
