SP2 didn't work, but that error led me to try a chkdsk, and that fixed the problem! A few bad files were removed and everything seems fine.

I tried a few restore points with no success. I'll try downloading SP2.

Also, System Restore is what was causing the BSOD. Couldn't think of the name.

Thanks! I'll try some of these suggestions tomorrow.

I've already run everything in Windows Update. I think I'm using SP1.. Windows Update never prompted me for SP2, so I'm not sure whether it's a recommended upgrade or what. The T400 is just a recent Lenovo Thinkpad laptop. It supports switching between an onboard Intel graphics card and a discrete Radeon one. Safe mode definitely does work, as does Ubuntu. If I do upgrade to Windows 7, I'd much rather do it at my leisure :) (Sorry for the lack of linebreaks, they're not being parsed.)
