Everything I have researched states that your problem is with the installation of SP1 for Vista. Unfortunately the remedy is a reinstall of the operating system.

What does starting in safe mode acconplish?


Booting in safe mode simply launches the operating system with minimal services enabled, usually no network availability, and a limited ability of usage, safe mode is used when diagnosing possible threats or for emergncy data access. In the event that the computer has stopped you from gaining access to it. A computer should never forcefully start in safe mode, it is an option usually selected on a black and white screen, start normally or start in safe mode, or start in safe mode with network. Hope this explains is a little better

You need to press F8 before the Windows screen appears...after you switch ON your laptop.

HELP ME PLEASE


This normally comes up when the computer is not shut down properly..or some files got corrupted. Normally you also have a choice of Start Repair With Windows. If none of those work then the only thing you can do is reinstall your Vista.
Good Luck..

Laptop stuck on screen "Windows is resuming"


First determine if windows is really hung.

Restart the laptop and keep pressing the F8 function key. You will get a menu. Try the safe mode option by selecting it with arrow keys and pressing enter. Click on Yes when it asks the question.

If Windows runs okay in safe mode, reboot and try starting normally without pressing any keys). If again it won't start, then go back to safe mode and when asked the Yes/No question, reply with a No and it will ask you to do a system restore. Just select a recent restore point say one or 2 days ago or the most recent and select restore. It will take some time and reboot the system. Now everything should be hopefully okay.

HTH,
Deboo
