Vista Won't Startup or install
okay so i bought my new computer about a month ago. It came ready setup with
vista premium. It was all working fine. Startinf up, shutting down, going
into sleep mode. But then one day i started having problems. It would come
out of sleep. it would freeze on the loading (microsoft windows screen with
the green bars crossing at the bottom) or i'd get a black screen right after
the loading one. usually my windows would start there but it just sat ont he
black screen. i could get it to work if i restarted a few times. Then two
days ago I had to upgrade my computer and virus software (norton internet
security 2007) so i restarted it and i havent been able to start it since. it
just lags on the black screen.
so i tried reinstalling vista. and it goes through all the install then
freezes... as in no progress on completeing the install. I had waiting for 18
hours and nothing. then a miracle power failure and my computer restarted.
and it goes to run but now there are 2 vista options to run from. and both
get past the loading screen but then i get a message; "windows failed to
start because installation has not been compeleted" so i do as it says,
restart but then it just goes back and i have to start the install all over
so is there any way to continue the install? and is there a way to remove
the old vista so its not taking up space?
