This is caused (thats all I know at the moment- the CAUSE) by a process in your VISTA that stuffs up and just hangs there.

Now to solve this one is quite tricky. I can remember we had to do a backup reload on a similair machine just because there wasn't a fix. So I'll just TRY to give you a solution that might fix this...

First, you could try an automated Windows Vista Repair:
if you boot from your windows Vista DVD, it should give you an option to :Scan for faults and automatically repair them. If That doesn't solve the issue try to access the "recovery console" on the Vista Boot up CD, and try a "chkdsk /r" then a "Fixboot" and finally a "Fixmbr" without the quote.

Ok, you can go into safemode, and you can, in normal mode, acces the device manager right ? So first off you check in the device manager which process uses the most CPU usage or the Most memory usage. It should only be a few processes listed because Vista hasn'nt started up properly. If you know the process, then we can take steps to "combat" it.

Now we know what process is using abnormal system recources. So you go into Safe mode, Start, type "cmd" without the quotes then msconfig. Now you'll have to go to Startup and uncheck the item that was using up the resources.
Apply, confirm and Save changes; then restart.

If there are more questions, please do not hesitate to contact me immediately.

Kind Regards,
Stef

Not sure, but try loading Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot and lowering screen resolution. In Safe Mode you can even run System Restore. It load to a previous date that you choose.

I am trying to boot up and I get as far as the windows welcome page and told to wait one moment then the screen goes black and never comes back...


Try switching to safe mode (F8) and see if it boots that way...if it does then one of the start up programs is hanging. Type in Start / run / msconfig and untick all programs except antivirus and adaware program / Reboot and when screen shows with having altered strt up menu simply tick the box.

If still no go then go into safe mode and choose in the CMOS menu "start with last best known config" and boot.

If still no go then the windows registry is corrupt requiring a repair / reload.

Vista won't fully load on Acer X3200 PC


Is that exactly what the error says? If so you may have a corrupted version of Windows Vista. Can you run a virus scan on it??

Acer Aspire 5315 has blank blue screen and will not run recovery disks


Try starting up in safe mode. To do this, press the F8 key immediately after the comuters posts & before windows starts to load. Then scroll to "Use last settings that last worked" & click on it.
