Start windows, befor Ram loads hit F8 / F9 / F11 so u can acces to Boot Menu
then Hit Safe Mode it will loads windows but with restricted opcions then go to Start menu --> execut or Go
and then type CHKDSK and reboot
if it doesnt work ull have to restore your system
ull have to boot on safe mode and do this it will work 100/100

Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
In the System Properties dialog box, on the System Restore tab, use the slider to increase the allocated disk space, and then click OK.
If you're using more than one drive on your system, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
Click the drive you want to monitor, and then click Settings.
In the Settings dialog box, shown in Figure 1, use the slider to increase the disk space, and then click OK twice.

Notice that the disk space allocated to System Restore cannot exceed 12%. If you need more space, you can run the Disk Cleanup utility to reclaim space. To open Disk Cleanup:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
arrow_px_up.gifTop of page Before You Try System RestoreSystemRestore should only be used after trying less comprehensive methods oftroubleshooting. System Restore changes many files and registryentries, and in some cases might replace more files than you wantrestored. So when I first run into a computer problem, I reboot mycomputer. I'm still amazed at how often a problem is solved by usingthis simple technique. Or, if your computer won't start in normal mode,reboot your computer, press F8 during the boot process, use the arrowkeys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
Other troubleshooting techniques that often work are listed below.
Run problem applications in Compatibility Mode if system instability occurs after installing a particular application. To run the Program Compatibility Wizard:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Program Compatibility Wizard.
Use Add or Remove Programsto uninstall a problem application if the system instability hasoccurred immediately after a new application has been installed andrunning the program in Compatibility Mode hasn't helped. AlthoughSystem Restore will remove the application if you choose to apply it,it is better to remove the offending application from Control Panel. Toopen Add or Remove Programs:
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
Click the program you want to remove, and then click Change/Remove.
If the system's instability has occurred immediately after a new device driver is installed, use the Device Driver Rollback feature instead of System Restore. To roll back to an earlier driver:
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.
In the Device Manager dialog box, double-click the hardware that uses the driver in question.
In the device Properties dialog box, on the Driver tab, click Roll Back Driver.
See Charlie Russel's columns, Device Driver Rollback Beats BSOD and Finding Compatible Device Drivers for Windows XP, and Paul McFedries' column, Troubleshoot Device Driver Problems, for more information about device drivers.
Work through the Windows XP troubleshooters in the Help and Support Center. To open a troubleshooter:
Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
Under Pick a Help topic, click Fixing a Problem.
Under Troubleshooting problems in the right pane, click List of troubleshooters, and then start a troubleshooter by clicking the name in the left column of the table.
If,after trying these options the computer is still unstable, opt forSystem Restore. You'll want to save this option for last because thechanges made to your computer are more comprehensive than if you simplyuninstall a program or rollback a device driver.
Use System RestoreAfteryou've decided to use System Restore to revert your system to aprevious state, start the System Restore Wizard and follow the prompts.To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as anadministrator, and then follow these steps:
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Automatic restart my laptop.Windows vista


If you are able to boot the computer in safe mode, you can disable the Automatic Restart from the Control Panel.

Open Control Panel.

Click on the System and Maintenance link.

If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link.

Click on the System link.

In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.

Locate the Start up and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.

In the Start up and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.

Click OK in the Start up and Recovery window.

Click OK in the System Properties window.

You can now close the System window.

From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.

If you're unable to fully start Windows Vista due to a Blue Screen of Death error, you won't be able to disable the automatic restart on system failure option as described in the steps above.

Try the steps below:

Just before the Windows Vista splash screen shown above appears, or just before your PC automatically restarts, press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options.

You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the Enter key.

After disabling the automatic restart on system failure option, Windows Vista might continue to load. Whether or not it does depends on what kind of Blue Screen of Death or other problem Windows Vista is experiencing.

Since you disabled the automatic restart on system failure, Windows Vista will no longer force a restart when it encounters a Blue Screen of Death.

Now that you have the STOP Code associated with the Blue Screen of Death, you can troubleshoot the problem:

The following is the list of BSOD error codes with troubleshooting, you can find the troubleshooting steps using the error codes in the MS website also..

Hope this helped you. Please do rate me.

Vista theme changes to windows classic upon restart

Are you wondering how to change the theme back to the "Vista Theme?" If so open "Theme Settings" by clicking the "Start" button, clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Appearance and Personalization," clicking "Personalization," and then clicking "Theme," then choose your desired theme.
If you've done this already, then you have a problem, usually when your appearance settings won't stay the way you want them to, and they keep revering to something else, it means that you have a virus on your machine.
To fix this you can try several things, try booting up in safe mode, and then restarting your computer.
You can reinstall Vista, by using the "Install discs" that came with your machine.
Hope this helps!

This is something you no longer have to worry about. Vista is no longer being supported so Microsoft will no longer be releasing new updates.

Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.
