now pretty much every time I start up my computer, It asks me if I want to start it normally, safe mode, safe mode with this thingy, safe mode with this other thingy, reset to the last time the computer was working, things like that.
Hand defintely not near f8.
aaaaand when I bring it out of hibernation, it always says restarting was paused- do I want to keep going, or (some other option)? And today when I told it to keep going, it actually paused a second time.
about two weeks ago, it bluescreened and died- and the "report this problem to microsoft" thing said "critical hardware failure."
Should I assume here that my computer is on its last legs?
