So I was working with my pc today when it suddenly froze, I restarted the machine and during startup I noticed that some letters were displayed wrong (like "A" where a "D" should be or "@" instead of a ".") and when windows started it displayed nothing understandable except the mouse that appeared to be normal. So i replaced all display drivers with new ones, needless to say it did not help. (Btw I could access windows through safe mode and there everything appears to be normal). So I thought maybe there is something wrong with the bios, took the battery out for 15min put it back in but no change is still displayed wrong letters and then I flashed the bios, still no change. When I start Windows normally it still displays scramble and a moving mouse. I´m using gigabyte ga-946-s3 motherboard with 1g ddr2, GeForce 8500 gt and windows xp
Any ideas on what might be not working?
