windows loads up to the first vista HP page (blue-pretty screen), says 'please wait', then 'configuring updates'(nothing else), and then 'shutting down'. It does this on safe mode, and every other selectable option in f8. Got recovery disks (they work but not in this case), can't f12, and was never given vista disk for startup. Is there a solution in f10? I am having this trouble on an Acer Power FH system. please help, assignment work on there in need to get to.
Can't even start safe mode with command prompt.
