I can't get my computer to boot, it was working fine and never had any problems with it, it's a Sony vaio laptop, and all of a sudden my computer shut off. I checked the power cord and realized my surge protector got shut off so I turned it back on and my computer said "windows error recovery" and had options of how I want to boot. I chose start normally since I figured it was the power and while waiting for it to load all these file names started going across the screen. I thought it was a virus so I shut it down and then restarted again only to get a blank screen and the error message kept coming up. I tried booting in all the safe modes and in last known config but nothings working. Sometimes the blue screen will pop up as well if I let it keep trying to restart before turning it off.
I should also mention that I don't have the windows vista cd.
Also, before my computer shut off the first time, there was a windows update and instead of restarting I hit postpone because I was in the middle of something. Not sure if that makes a difference.
Thanks so much for any help
