Pagebor, thanks for reply. Am i right in thinking OS is operating system?
As a beginner I am still none the wiser. Could you elaborate for my benefit, as to what i should actualy be doing now. Do you mean remove Vista and re install a new version?
Apologies for making it a little difficult considering my lack of knowledge.

you have to partition your hard drive and put win on one partition and linux on the other partition
then when it boots up yo set your bios to ask which os you want and go enter on it and it will boot that os for you or i think that you can put an icon on desktop and double click on that to open the os system
talk with a computer geek to see how it is done
You cannot download the OS from another computer. You should have a Restore CD. If you do not, power it down, then power up again. When the computer begins to boot, look for a message that says something about Restore. It may be like "For System Restore, Press F10".
If you do not see this, power down and up again and press F8 when it begins to boot. There are a couple options here. You can try: Boot to Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode, or see if there is a Restore option on this menu.
If none of these options work, you may have to get a new OS. Would suggest eBay where you can get them fairly reasonable.
As per your issue since you cannot boot to safe mode or last known good configuration.probably your Operating system file is corrupted.Tried to boot from OS xp media or vista and try to repair the operating system.Change the boot sequence to boot from cd in the bios.
if your operating system installed in your computer is vista then you want to change into win xp,,, just insert you os xp into cd roon drive then boot it..by preesing f12 in acer, dell,toshiba, and others..
then follow the instruction bellow..
format then install the os xp..
after that you uninstalld the vista then you install also the xp..
Please try booting from OS CD then go to command prompt (fix windows from console).
Then chose the right os (in case you have more than one)
then type in your admin password (in case you have one)
then type fixboot at the command prompt.
Hopefully it'll help... if not please drop a line I'll take it to the next phase.
Thank you for using agadycom.
may be it is a keylogger which is attacked to your system so you couldnt able to type ...
or may be the bios is unable to detect the keyboard .. once you remove the keyboard from the port and put it back again that may work have a check with this ...
