original title: Windows Vista 32-bit crashes as system is loading. Safe mode hangs after crcdisk.sys loads. System restore also fails.
My computer (an HP m9200t) no longer fully boots after installing a new windows update. When turned on the computer will begin to load windows and allow me sign in. However, about 30 seconds to 2 minutes after signing in I can no longer interact with my desktop (although I can interact with programs that automatically load upon startup, like windows live messenger). I sometimes receive a screen that says "kbd.exe failed to initialize properly". I have tried to restore my system to a point before the update loaded, but I am told my file system is corrupt. When I run a system diagnostic, I am told there is a problem with one of my hard drives. I have also tried to boot in safe mode, but the system hangs immediately after loading crcdisk.sys
