How far does it get in booting. Do you see the Windows screen with the side scrolling bar before it reboots. During the boot process, start hitting the F8 key once a second until it drops you into a menu where you can select to start in Windows with safe mode. If you cant get that far, hit the DEL key a few times a soon as you boot the computer to try to go into your BIOS. If you can get into either of these, I may be able to help you.

Wont boot up

You should kindly explain how it started, what happened and symptoms you see.
Try this:
1. When you try booting and you can see your operating system (OS) e.g 'Windows Vista' appearing on the screen and not giving you a successful booting, then repair repair Windows or formating using your Operating System software.
2. When you try booting and you can't see anything on your screen or not even a sign of booting, try and confirm if your motherboard is still good. And if bad a pin board can be fix and pinless board unfixablr.

Google end user licence agreement

The problem here is that you are not seeing the entire screen. Your screen resolution is probably set to 800x600 this needs to be increased to at least 1028x764.

To do this (in Vista) go to Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > (under the header Personaltion) Adjust Screen Resolution

Slide the bar in the center of the popup window to the right to achive a higher resolution. Click OK.

After you do this you should be able to see the entire license agreement.

Trying to do a repair installation

OK, that screen is the bios for the laptop. Don't do anything in there. (except check under boot and make sure the boot order is cd then hard drive) Once the boot order is correct, just boot from the cd rom, and to do a repair, just keep continuing past where you are asked to enter F-8, the next screen will offer a repair for the windows installation- press R. That keeps your files and programs, but reinstalls windows. Good luck
