Re: Stopped booting

Power supply fuse maybe trip/busted, you let repair the PSU to repair shop or you replace it with the same wattage rating or higher.

Wont boot, not even from CD, won't open setup or boot options

At first you insert your system disc on your cd/dvd rom driver and restart your computer. Now press F2 or DEL until you get your BIOS option. Now go to advance option then boot option in that. Now change your first boot option to CD/DVD ROM DRIVE and save that change by pressing F10. Now restart your computer and continue your installation. Thank you.

Start-up shows "Launch Start-up recovery" but am unable to proceed

This is Vista you are running and there are a couple of options. I'll go for the easy one first

Boot and insert Vista install or recovery DVD (any Vista disc will do for this)

Reboot and hopefully it will offer the option to boot from the DVD. Take this option and follow it through until you are offered the option to install Vista or repair your computer. Just follow things though from there and it MAY repair the boot problem.

If it does not offer you the initial boot option then look on the initial boot screen for the boot options key - probably F11 or F12 - and press that during initial boot to obtain the boot options screen

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.
