Hello,

I've got a problem with my PC... I'm running windows vista and when I boot it up it loads slow and stuff but eventually comes to my normal desktop but after like 10 minutes of being really slow and not being able to do anything it black screens to a no bootable device screen. How do I fix something like that? Am I going to have to reformat?

Thanks,
Andrew

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

 

Do you have the installation disc for this version of Vista?

Because the black screen is happening after the computer has booted into Windows I would suggest running a diagnostic tool on the hdd.

 

In order to determine the manufacturer of the hdd please do the following.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When  FileHippo opens, click on Download latest version in the upper right pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Same thing

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/YMa2QxqAvmBipWnHBLPqo14

 

It gives me an error that says cpu dll int failed (error 2)! some information will not be displayed!

 

If it has anything to do with anything my windows security is OFF and will not let me turn it ON. Just says can not be started.

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Please download and run SeatTool for Windows.
 
When the website opens scroll down till you find the I Accept button and click on it.
 
If you scroll down below this button you will find instruction for installing this.
 
Once you install this program you will see an image similar to the one below.
