Its either your hard drive has gone bad or you have an ethernet cable attached to your computer,when it boots up and you have ethernet connected to it,it will try to look for the OS at the ethernet,try rebooting your computer while the ethernet cable is disconnected..see what will happen

reboot your laptop , read the screenwhen it says press ? for boot menu
press (f8) for bios

press the one that says boot menu and then when it asks you where to boot choose the one that says hard drive. when that boots up and works. you need to restart your pc and press the f8 one to go into bios, then go to the boot tab, and change it to boot 1st from your hdd. somehow it got changed and it is looking somewhere else for the boot directions and its making errors

Crashed vista help!

it's look like you have a problem with hdd or motherboard.
basically, your motherboard isnot detecting your hdd.

try to boot and press F2 to go to bios and check your hdd in bios.
if it is takes long time to go to bios. most of the time your hdd is dead.
but it is fast and your hdd isnot detected in bios. it's mean your motherboard is bad.
