Hello. My very first post here on BC. I too had this problem. What happened was I downloaded a "freebie" from well the usual place and the program did nasties. So, hp had to send me free copies of Vista discs so I can fix my laptop (G70 series). So, I formatted the hd and installed the DVD's and it brought it back to life, otherwise my system was gone. The sad thing is, I only had this laptop running for 5 days, the program was or could have been Jaksta a video downloader or something else that I tried for free. BTW, I dislike Vista and my new laptop, I get more problems with it than my old one (Pavilion 9000).
I just had this happen on my boyfriend's Vista laptop (and he does abuse it pretty badly!) Startup repairs never fixed it, but I could get it into safe mode. I still couldn't find anything causing it, though I suspect it was a botched install of something. I rebooted, pressed F8 and chose "Last Good Configuration" and that fixed it! I am now scanning it to be sure it's completely free of viruses and hard disks are error-free. Then I'm going to back it up and set a restore point, since none appeared to have been set. Vista is a bit funky; I'm so used to XP and went directly to Win7 without stopping at Vista!
