Turn the laptop on.
Just after the laptop logo's have vanished start to press F8 repeatedly until you see an option page pop up.
If the Windows loading screen shows up then you will have to do it again.
Select "Last known good configuration"
Press Enter 2 times.

I have such problem since so many days as i can't download any vista themes from internet and if i download it then i can't apply it.give me solution as soon as possible.


First, if you're using Vista 32-bit, here's a good site documenting the need for a utility that will patch some of your files in order to allow you to add themes you've downloaded.
Here's another GREAT UTILITY that will allow you to install custom-created, 3rd party Windows Vista themes using VistaGlazz.
What types of websites are you trying to get these Windows Vista themse from? Sometimes it is necessary to use a variety of different web browsers, so if you're trying to use Firefox or Chrome, you may want to use Internet Explorer for a moment.
When I do a Google Search for Windows Vista Themes, I found millions of results.
You can always download and install the Vista Themes provided by Microsoft.

How to apply themes in vista after installing vista glazzz


Try downloading the UXTheme Patcher. When you open the program it will ask you if you want to patch. Click yes and it will patch it for you. (You may need to restart for changes to take effect)

Click Here to download.

If that does not sort out your problem then go to this website.

I really hope i helped you.

How do i download themes and where do i download them to windows vista.


First, to make custom themes work in Vista you have to patch vista.
You can read on how to do that on these sites:

1. How to patch vista for cusom themes
2. VistaGlazz 1.1 : Take transparency a step further

You can then get themes from these places:

1. VistaKnowledge.com
2. wvistathemes.com

To install a theme you have to unpack the file you downloaded to:
X:WindowsResourcesThemes
(X is the harddrive where you have vista installed)

After this you can doublecklick the .theme file to load the theme. :)
