It's a short entangled story. It's about a nontechy in pursuit of a simple solution (that ain't surfaced so far) for a new HP laptop Vista OS nightmare-of-a-boot up problem. It's about an undeterred user's disappointing and disarming journey through the badlands of hardware and software manufacturer online and live cs technical support chitchat rooms. And it's about a walk down a frustratingly solutionless trail of OS recovery file, .torrent file, and Microsoft W AIK kit downloads and DVD burns before finally reaching hopefully the omnificent "source" for all PC things fixable -- BC Com! :thumbsup:

Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
