boot up problem
I am using my backup computer right now because of the problem I am having with my main comp.
I installed the original Half Life on my computer which has XP Home SP1 fully updated. A Half Life message popped up and said that there were compatability issues with the game and my version of windows and I being an idiot, continued anyway. The install went seemingly fine after that but when I tried to update the game, the screen went low res and the comp froze until I brought up task manager and closed the game, but the screen was still low res and the game music was still playing, although the music was stuck on one part and sounded like it was skipping.
Now, I did a proper shutdown and tried to reboot, but now it gets stuck at the loading screen where the windows logo appears. I left it sit for an hour and still it's stuck. I went into safe mode and did some registry cleaning and virus cleaning and everything was fine in safe mode, and everything was fine in safe mode with networking. But when I try to boot normally it gets stuck and also when I try to boot in last known good configuration it gets stuck.
Please help me guys, I never messed up my comp this bad before. Any advice is appreciated. If you need to know more like specs or anything, just ask.
