Re: Recovered from boot sector corruption - now can't login
It sounds like your HD is failing. Better make backups and consider that
you may need to replace it. As to the graphics driver, can't you adjust it
in video card settings? Right click on a free space on the desktop and
select personalise. Choose display settings. You may also have a video
control panel that you can select when you right click.
