windows vista 64 - stuck in windows error recovery loop. won't go into safe mode, won't recognize recovery disc.

quad core, 6 gigs ram. no hardware problem i can come up with.
just constant restarts back to windows error recovery screen.

to bios screens anyhow. nothing gets me out of the loop i can figure out.

See if you can load (using F10 or F12) one of the free, bootable diagnostics from here:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

If that doesn't work, then try F2 to get into the BIOS.
Set the boot order so that the CD/DVD is first, then try to run the free, bootable diagnostics from here:  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.htmlf

If that doesn't work, then you'll have to try another CD/DVD drive (or take it to a repair shop for an estimate).

Good luck!
