I am writing from my own laptop, but the problem I am having is with another laptop.
It is a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista.
I am getting an error message when trying to turn it on--
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert you Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose language settings, click next
3. Click "repair your computer"
If you do not have the disc (of course, I don't!) contact your system admin or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.
