Hi, my mom recently told me her computer was having some problems, I don't know what is wrong with it. I can't even get past the boot screen, it goes to the startup repair, and tells me that the problem cannot be fixed automatically. So I tried a factory image restore, and it won't even do that! I booted the vista installation disk and tried reinstalling windows, and it tells me theres a registry issue. I don't know what else to try, and I can't run any scans because I can't get to the desktop... any ideas?

PS I may not be able to respond within a normal time range, I'm never home or have time to get on the computer.

<<I booted the vista installation disk and tried reinstalling windows, and it tells me theres a registry issue.>>

The registry is a factor...only for an installed Windows version. Any indication of "registry issues" when trying to install Windows...makes no sense, IMO.

Unless you have hardware issues that result in misleading error messages...such as the CMOS battery or RAM may cause.
