Artisan62 re; Vista not booting

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.

Get back to me if you can, regards Artisan62

    PauldLucky, G'day mate, thank you for taking the trouble to reply. The PC will only intermittently go to boot manager and it just doesn't respond to anything i try, however the website details were very interesting, remember i'm only a beginner so i struggle to even understand the jargon, but there was or is an article there about corruption of your files as a result of downloading multiple queus of media files at the same time, which is when this problem occured and it is related to the NVIDIA n Force aswell, so i have a gutt instinct herein lies the problem? So as I'm in contruction and a sledge hammer will only result in more damage. Reluctantly i'm off to see the boy genius at the local repair shop tomorrow, lets see how he copes!

Is it Possible to Have 2 operating Systems on One Hard Drive? And Be able To Choose Which one to use at the Boot Screen? I Would like to install Ubuntu Linux without Erasing Windows Vista...

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

Missing operating system

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.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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.

Laptop wont work after installing vista service pack 1

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.
