Question about Computers & Internet
Can you give additional information? the purple screen could also be the dreade BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. do get to see any error message or stop code? can you try to boot using LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION? by pressing F8 when your computer starts and in the advance boot menu select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.
normally vista will repair itself when you restart it. was vista able to repair the OS?
Blue screen can be caused by several factors it could be both hardware and software. for software it could be caused by any new software/program installed or updates installed. for hardware it could be from your hard drive to memory depending on the error message. but at this point we shall presume it to be caused by a software and could have corrupted your vista file or hive of our vista.
first option is if you can still go tosafe mode try to do a system restore click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a highlighted date on the calendar to the left when your computer works well and restore your computer to that date
if you are still having problem get your vista cd ready we may need to fix some files in your computer
boot to cd with your vista inside your cd rom drive. let your windows load up and when you get to see the window welcome setup screen choose repair then type chkdsk /r
still lots to be done but for now let us assume one of the fixes is within this reply
