Hello,
Please try booting from OS CD then go to command prompt (fix windows from console).
Then chose the right os (in case you have more than one)
then type in your admin password (in case you have one)
then type fixboot at the command prompt.
Hopefully it'll help... if not please drop a line I'll take it to the next phase.
Thank you for using agadycom.

If this fixit didn't work (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2271812), make sure all of your windows updates have been applied. Once system is completely updated, try the fixit again.

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.

Windows Vista will Shutdown but will restart in immediately


You can create a shutdown icon on your desktop that might resolve your issue.

  1. Right-click on the desktop, choose New and then Shortcut.4ffc395.jpg
  2. In the shortcut location box, enter
    • Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
  3. When you've clicked 'Next...', you'll be asked to name the shortcut. Probably best to name it 'Shutdown'
  4. After you click 'Finish' you should now have a new icon that you can double-click to shutdown your computer.
Hope this helps! : )
