I've been having issues for ~2 weeks. I have an HP laptop ~4-1/2 years old with Vista SP2. The monitor died so I added an HP external monitor. The PC is acting erratically. I did a scan for viruses (I have AVG free) and initially a virus was detected and quarantined. Upon shutdowns or restarts, the PC will appear to restart/shutdown, but actually recycle again and come up to the 'blue screen.' I go to 'safe mode' and then reboot again and the problem appears to go away for awhile. Last night when trying to 'hibernate' the PC, it rebooted, went to blue screen, I went to safe mode and then shut it all the way down. This a.m. I turned on the PC and it once again went to blue screen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
