been doing OS homework. but i think i just found out why my computer's fucking up.... my BIOS is saying: "During the last boot-up, your system hung for an improper CPU Speed setting. Your system is now working in safe mode. To optimize the system performance and reliability, make sure the CPU speed conforms to the specifications of your CPU." Well, damnit.... I'm not overclocking it or anything. Piece of crap. Time for a new CPU? Maybe I'll put it out right now and blow dust off it.... Grrr.
