    I have an MSI VR630 laptop which is their base model laptop. I used windows 7 as a beta tester for free for about 7 months when I first got this computer[​IMG]. When the free trial ran out, I restored the computer and loaded VISTA home basic edition. I had to turn off my computer to rush out the door just when I was starting windows. I left to my appointment and when I tried to restart, I got the error message to start windows in repair mode or start windows normally. I chose start windows in repair mode. So..it didn't work and it just took me back to the screen...over and over. So I tried start window normally and then tapped F8 and got the advanced options of starting in safe mode, safe mode with networking, last known configuration...etc. I've tried Safe mode...no luck...takees me back to the repeating "repair mode" screen. I've tried safe mode with networking, no luck, and safe mode with command prompt. No luck. Also have tried last known good configuration and of course same thing.

    I have also been able to get to the advanced boot menu but this doesn't seem to matter.

    I'd like some help if anyone out there can give me some. I called MSI tech support and all they said was that "Vista is the most unstable and the software is probably corrupt so you will have to go out and buy a new OS disk and start from scratch.

    I'm hoping not. Thanks for your assistance.
