    I just tried several times with the disk and and out to try to get to the BIOS, but if the screen doesn't freeze before I hit F1, it does after. Do you think I'll end up having to take off the memory card reader after all?

    It could be worse than just the memory card reader, it sounds like the BIOS is about to go belly up or something. I suppose at this point, it couldn't hurt much to try anything else. I would check to make sure all cables are securely connected, clean and dust free.....make sure all RAM modules and internal parts are connected securely.

    I just cleaned out the inside of the computer with an air compressor about two weeks ago- my dad said it would be a good idea.

    Maybe it is the fault of the air compressor?

    Was it doing this before you cleaned it out?
    If not, you may have just knocked something loose and dind't notice it.

    Yes, it has been doing this for a very long time.
