Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

Vista Home Prem - Failed to connect to a window service upon boot

First, I have a HP Pavilion dv92200 laptop.

Background:

When the laptop boots (after entering the password), the boot process takes longer and when it does fully boot (probably a few minutes), I get a "Failed to connect to a windows service. Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service service. This problem prevents limited users from logging on to the system...etc". It will not connect to a network (or show any networks) and my firewall is turned off and I cannot restart it. Under Network and Shared Connection the network discovery is turned and it will not turn on (the system just locks up when I try to). Finally all the Event logs are blank, or access is denied to them.

What I have done:
-- I have scanned the drives using MalwareBytes, AVG, Spybot, and Windows Defender and there was no significant detection
-- Logged in as admin, created a new user account, signed in under that account and it did the same thing.
--Checked msconfig for any rogue startup and services items.

Certainly it seems as if I got hit by something, although nothing is being detected. Any ideas??

Do you have the correct version of Windows 7? You cannot load a 64 bit onto a 32 bit system, you cannot load Ultimate onto Home.

Do you still boot to the original op sys, what was it?

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't have.how i can get this


The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

File header checksum does not match computed one. ???


You have one or more critical corrupted file/s which prevents the laptop from booting up.
To get the laptop operating again, you need to insert the Windows Vista CD and do a Repair and if this fails you need to install Vista again.

Booting is delay so much time


Try the following steps:

1. Tap "F8" key while computer is starting
2. Select "Safe Mode" from the startup options menu.
3. If the computer boots in safe mode, restart the computer and check if the problem still exists

This could happen if the BIOS update has created some changes which are not compatible with Windows Vista. Try updating the BIOS again.
