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
