Hello, having trouble getting windows vista to start.  Computer was frozen so i had to manually reboot.  Getting a message saying failed to reboot.  There is no system recovery option.  At one point i was asked to insert system install disc to load driver. (insert installation media for the device and click okay to select a driver)  Not sure what to do there. 



  I was able to get startup repair to run...it has gone through one cycle of repairing and asked me to reboot.  I rebooted and it failed again to boot, so it ran the startup repair again...prompted for another restart.  After this restart it appears to be stuck on a black screen with just the cursor showing.  I am unsure of whether to let it site a while or try another manual reboot.


I unfortunately dont think i have my original installation CDs for vista and i would like to get my computer working again without losing everything.


Do i have any other options other than the startup repair im currently running?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


If it helps, i have an ACER aspire 8930.


Thanks again in advance


edit:am unable to start in safe mode
