hey all... i have an emachines m5105 laptop. i just reinstalled windows xp professional on it, went through the whole process, everything was fine. i installed windows updates, all the emachines drivers, then aol messenger, a couple of simple programs, then adobe dreamweaver, reader, the google toolbar and microsoft office (in that order). by the time i was done, the laptop screen flashes to an almost black screen, on and off, constantly. i uninstalled office and dreamweaver, since that was not happening before i installed those programs, but i'm still having the same problem. anyone have any idea what may be going on?

I usually go through a process of elimination with problems like these. First you will want to use the msconfig.exe utility to disable all non Windows startup services and apps. Then reboot your computer and start enabling the programs one a time rebooting each time until you find the problem.
