Also is formatting the drive from right clicking on the drive and from computer management the same thing? Is the...

So I decided to finally give in and call MS since I wasn't getting anywhere with this. Unfortunately, they too were unable to determine the cause of the problem. Since this problem only occurs randomly on my computer, they informed me that they were unable to do anything else. However, they pointed something out that I found interesting. Basically, since I use a high resolution LCD monitor...

Also, safe mode will not boot.
