      You could try pressing F8 when booting up the laptop to get the Windows boot option menu and choose the option 'Last Known Good Configuration'.

      Hope this helps...

          Thanks for you help! I did the F8 and that got me onto another role (kinda forgot about that) lol It will only start in Safe Mode with some advanced thing it wont start in safe mode or with last configured settings... When I start it in safe mode or normally the after it loads windows vista all the way and you see windows logo and then it loads for the desktop it goes to a black screen after that nothing happenes.!! I have to keep restarting the computer (Hard) to get it off... I've been in ms dos for several hours trying to find out stuff and im currently doing diagnostics but I dont know if that will help... I will ask my friend if i can reformat it with windows xp because I just cannot stand windows vista right now.
