original title: Windows Vista crashed...Startup Repair won't Launch..please help.
My laptop screen went black on me this morning...it appeared to still be running, but the screen looked as though it was off.
I turned it off and tried to turn it on again. The 'Acer' logo came on as normal, but when the Windows Vista loading screen appeared, there were little green squares on it in lines, vertically down the screen...
Then, it took me to the 'Windows Failed to Start' screen, with the option to do a Startup Repair. (green squares still present).
I tried to Launch it and it just refreshes the counter for the auto launch, and when I choose to Start Windows normally, it just black screens again...
Really struggling here guys - although luckily I backed some of my work up yesterday, so can live with wiping the hard drive if necessary.
ANY help/pointers will be most gratefully received.
Thanks in advance.
Should be in Vista, sorry :(
