I cannot get my pc to start up and I'm not sure if it's because I recently changed my monitor, I've changed it before with no problems arising but a friend thinks that my problems may be caused by this, I'll explain as clearly as I can.
About a week or so after connecting up my new monitor my pc wouldn't start up, it would start the process but then go to ' boot from cd or disk' and start from the beginning all over again and just repeat this in a loop.
I couldn't even start in safe mode, so I tried to repair using the Vista disk but it would say the problem is not able to be repaired using Vista Repair.
I then (and this is where my immense lack of pc knowledge becomes disturbingly apparent), I then tried to reinstall Vista but couldn't get it to work, I've tried a couple more times and my son tells me I've installed it 4 times now!! So I can get to the screen that allows me to go to the system recovery options and I've looked at the tutorial about command prompt but am a little scared of doing that.
My problem is two fold - firstly I want to get my pc to start up properly (duh obvious I know)
But secondly, how do I remove the other Vista Installations and is it possible to try and access my original installation to get that to work so I don't lose anything, when I first tried to reinstall Vista it said that this was saved as 'old' - so is this accessible and repairable? If this is not possible then I'd be happy just to get a clean version of Vista working again.
I'd be really grateful for any help anyone is able to offer. I'm not sure if I've got a virus or if this is a result of the change of monitor - if I could establish this it might make things a bit simpler.
