If you're using a regular installation of Windows, get your Vista DVD, put it in your DVD drive, boot up to the recovery console and run a repair installation. This will fix Windows without deleting anything.

What is this Internet you speak of?

Vista will only permit a repair installation from within Windows unfortunately.
But running Startup Repair may fix your boot issue: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have this problem too. It will go to the load screen with the green bars scrolling across and wait for some time then restart itself. It gives me the options of Safe Mode and Safe Mode with network and so on but the same problem occurs. I then tried to run a start up repair with my Vista disk. The problem I encounter here is that my computer doesn't give me the option to select Vista OS. I followed the above link on how to automatically fix the problem. If you scroll down to figure 4 you will see where my problem is. My computer does not have a Microsoft Windows Vista as an option for me to click. It is blank. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this?
