SOURCE: Sony VAIO VGN-NR385e vista windows crashed

Is it telling you you don't have an OS?Could be HDD has died.That would be relatively an easy fix and not too expensive.See if you can find a working hdd the same type ,pop it in and see if your restore disks will work.

Windows will not start - Vista Support ad crashing it

You have installed "scareware" -- malicious software that claims to have discovered non-existent computer-viruses.

Restart in Safe Mode, and then use "System Restore" to restore your computer to an earlier date/time, i.e., _before_ you installed that "scareware". Or, in Safe Mode, try to "uninstall" the scareware.
