I have a windows vista that wont boot or startup. It started when I was on the computer, doing something, and then my computer just froze still. I waited for a while to see if itll unfreeze because I did not want to start over. Then it took too long so i had to unplug the plug (which I have done before because NOTHING would move or do anything on the screen) Then I turned it on and it goes through the normal stuff, and then I notice that it isn't going in. It doesnt show the safe mode screen. It starts up showing the white words, then goes to the loading page. It says: Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility
If I hit F1, then the Windows Error Recovery page shows with two options: Launch Startup Repar (recommended)
Start Windows Normally
If I hit the first option, then the screen goes black for 1 second then it goes back to the windows error recovery
If i hit the 2nd option, then it does the loading page, then white word with the 2 options (F1 and F2) at the end
If I hit F2 then it shows all these computer options which I don't see anything that'll help my computer.
But when the loading page comes up, I hit F12 (F2 is the setup) then another page comes up, which is the Boot Device Menu
There are 5 options:
*Hitachi (Numbers and letters here)
*Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive
*Hard Drive Diagnostics
*Boot to Utility Partition
A couple of those show errors and start the cycle all over again and thats it, and the others are useless, and thats pretty much all my computer does.
