I have a black screen and it can't start Vista Business after Bios finnished and before the 'Microsoft Corporation' bar at bottom is blinking, so that I need to manually shut down drastically with the power OFF button to reboot my laptop.
My laptop couldn't start properly as the 'Microsoft Corporation' green progress bar at bottom doesn't appear.
This occured only if I 'm working on my laptop during a few hours.
If I'm working for a few minutes and I shut down my laptop, I can start without any troubles.
If after after a few hours, I plug the cordon and I start again my laptop, and click on F8 to start on Safe Mode, it's loading the drivers, but stops to crcdisk.sys and it stops the start of Safe Mode.
The only way I found to boot with no troubles is to 'disable AHCI' from the BIOS, but :
If I turn off my laptop and unplug from the wall outlet and I start again after a few hours, the Bios come back with the old settings with 'AHCI enable'.
If I reboot my laptop after a few minutes (unplugged or not unplugged from wall outlet), there is no problem, it can save my last settings, and my laptop can boot with no problems.
Maybe the bios can't change to 'disable AHCI' because on my registry I have the following settings :
Which value do I need to change to enable SATA/IDE ?
What I did :
I ran SFC and CHKDSK, a 'Repair my Computer' with the Bootable Vista Cd, Memtest, check my HDD with HDDRegenerator.
Thanks in advance
