Question about Acer Aspire 4720 Notebook
F9 isn't the key you want to press, when your computer is booting up, you want to spam the F8 key. This will bring you to the Advanced System Option menu. From here you can either try logging into Safe Mode and performing a System Restore, or you can choose Directory Services Restore Mode.
If that doesn't correct the problem, put your Windows Vista DVD into your computer, go into the BIOS and enable your computer to boot from the DVD.
If you aren't sure how to set this up properly, I would suggest calling a friend who does, or bring the computer to a service technician. Setting something incorrectly in the BIOS Menu can severely damage your computer.
