I was busy creating an archive from a large ISO file when i got a small pop up saying that windows was going to close down in 1 minute,
I didnt have time to finish what i was doing befiore it shut itself down.

When i starrted the boot up sequence again it all went fine until the progress bar disappeared and then it just hangs on a black screen.

I have tried downloading a vista boot disk with a look into doing a system restore but it just keeps telling me that there are no oproblems so it cant fix them,

I am totally stuck.

I have got a Phenom 9500 HP pavillion with 3 gb ram and a nvidia gforce 9600

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

If you need any extra info then please let me know.



i can get safemode to load but no icons appear so i cant do anything with that either ?[topic="URGENT"]URGENT[/topic]
