This morning I come back to my Dell Laptop Insp. 1720 to find it continually rebooting itself.
It reboots, and automatically goes to the screen which says " Configuring windows update stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete / Do not turn off your computer" then after a few seconds or minutes varies each time it will reboot itself and cycle through this same process.
After so many times, I did power down the Laptop and when powered up again it did the same cycle repeatedly.
I tried to start in safe mode but no luck went to same screen and same reboot cycle happened.
I put the system disk in to see if it would boot from the disk but no such luck...
HOW can I get past this screen and have a working laptop again (and hopefully not losing anything in the process0????
Oh I had installed a wireless router a month ago but a couple of weeks ago my wireless just stopped working as well and haven't been able to connect to my network.. have it wired in right now.. (well with this last problem I am UNABLE to have any computer usage.. :( )
LOL.. oh.. another vista great.. my CPU usage keeps hitting 100% everytime I open a program and my Laptop is only a few months old.. and has 4gb of ram, and a 320mb Harddrive, and an excellent video card.. I also have an external HD 750gb, which it keeps telling me is unknown device until I unplug and plug back in the cable... hhmm there's got to be a problem somewhere there..
I am really starting to hate VISTA about now.... Please any advise is greatly appreciated :)
