Driver Preventing Start-up
The system "lost" its sound card driver (Realtek). Upon re0installing the standard driver available on the system, the "blue screen" shut it down. Now it will not start-up at all due to a "driver" problem and the auto-fix cen not correct it. So, short of re-installing the operating system, what can be done? Computer is an Acer lap-top about 2 years old.

or if that doesn't work,

2. Also from the Vista DVD, try a System Restore to before the troubles with
the sound card happened. If you only have a "restore disk", see:
