Have you done a clean installation??? What did you do after the installation was complete??? What is the specification of your laptop???? Is your Vista Disc working perfectly ??? I will suggest you to Download or buy new Disc of Vista ultimate & then try to install as per me it might be the problem with your Disc of Vista...!

There many consequences of computer getting hang so firstly i will ask you what & haw much Ram are you using???? Because you require minimum of 2GB of RAM for Vista to perform perfectly...! If your are using less then 1GB of Ram it definitely going to Hang your computer...! Is giving any error when it is hang on your computer...!

Try going into BIOS (F2 on boot up), change the SATA in BIOS from ACHI to ATA. Re-install Vista, this should fix the hang.

This is probably defunct now, can't wait till they bury Vista for good.
