I have this weird computer issue on my brother's computer; it's been like this for a long time. Operating system is Vista Home Premium, on an emachine desktop. On startup, the computer loads and asks what mode it should be started it. However, regardless of what I choose, the system gets to the 'Microsoft Corporation' screen with the green loading bar and stays there for about five minutes, then the screen flashes with a hint of pink and we're back at the Emachines screen being asked what mode to start in. Right now, I chose an option to 'load from a disk' and all this did was say 'windows is loading files' then go to a black screen. About a minute later a large arrow pointer appeared. Then about five minutes later the ugly Vista green tye dye pattern showed up behind the pointer. Then, about ten to fifteen minutes after I got the black screen I am at the Windows Vista installer screen (the Vista operating system disk is in cd rom drive). Now, ten minutes later, after clicking a button that says 'install' I am stuck on a Vista tye dye screen with an hourglass pointer and the words 'please wait...'. :/
I do have the windows vista operating system disk, but no other disks for the computer.
I really really would appreciate some help with this because I def. don't have the money to take this in to get repaired, much less for a new computer.
Thanks so so so much.
