very strange boot pattern RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im working on a customers Dell Demension C521 and just  now I have noticed some strange things that happen when I try to reboot.

    I just recently uninstalled Norton Anti Virus to replace it with somthing else and when I was told to reboot, vista didnt go back into the login screen, It just sat there with a black screen. It got past the scrolling bar but thats it.

    I did a series of trouble shooting steps and came to find that I have to let it get to the black screen, turn it off, then let it reboot to a setup screen (Safemode options whatnot)  Click boot normaly,  and then I can get it.

    Also I have to have my either net cable unplugged for this to work ?_?

    Ill post more information on request.

    I was able to boot using the "Disable driver Signing" option.
