Computer freezes -- No restore
So my computer freezes at random times, sometimes if I let it sit the monitor distorts into... well if you grabbed the top corner and went to the lower right -- other than that I can not explain it.
I can not system restore to anywhere, and I can not scan my computer via kerpensky(sp) or Spy Sweeper because the computer freezes before the scans can finish.
I can not boot in safe mode because my mouse and keyboard are wireless and they do not boot in safe mode. And I was wondering what I could do before I have to just wipe everything off and start over?
How old is your computer that it can't boot with a USB keyboard/mouse? Being wireless is irrelevant -- the computer sees it as a wired USB connection. You probably have legacy USB support disabled in BIOS, perhaps?
I use wireless keyboards and mice on almost all of my systems, and they work when booting into Windows, Linux, and even DOS without any problems or drivers. You can't use all the extra keys and features, but the basic keys and mouse movements work fine.
It is a brand new computer -- and I will check the USB support in the BIOS. Hopefully I can get it to work in Safe Mode and be able to diagnose it from there.
EDIT USB mouse and keyboard were enabled.

And it still won't work in Safe Mode? If you got into BIOS then your keyboard works, obviously. Now I've had cases where a USB mouse (wireless or wired) wouldn't work with something like an Acronis TrueImage bootable restore CD, but the keyboard still works.
If the keyboard works, you can still get around Windows without the mouse if you know the right keystrokes, it's just a pain.
are you messing with OC'ing settings?
The PC runs in Safe Mode but for the most part will not load in regular mode. I am just going to reformat -easiest way to do it with Vista is.....
