Laptop stuck in a loop and will not start
Folk's

I know other people have experienced the same problem as I have and seemed to have solved the problem I have had no such luck. I followed the instructions on some of the other mails as best I could.

I'll set the scene with my Laptop it is a Dell inspiron 6000 which had XP loaded on it, I then updated it to Vista Ultimate, it was running fine until the download took place last week. The laptop has a Pentium M processor and 1024mb installed memory. That is really as much as I can tell you about the machine.

The download took place and I was unaware until the next day I have no laptop and nearly a years worth of work has been trapped. I switched it back and noticed it had gone into this loop of telling me "updates were not configured properly, reverting changes, do not turn off your computer" and then it will shut down and re-start it self. I created a recovery disk tried to boot from the DVD drive, but no luck. Still in the loop and I have no idea what to do next


I'm really at the end of my rope as all my course notes are on it and I can't get access to them. There is nobody in the location that seems to be able to help me.
I now have a lump of plastic and metal that I can no longer use.

Appreciate any help.

Thank you

Re: Laptop stuck in a loop and will not start
Your best bet is to contact Microsoft support for free assistance. I just did and now my computer boots again.
