    Hey everyone, Can anyone help me please?

    Someone is paying me to fix their laptop, Everytime it boots up it goes to the "windows error recovery" screen, I am trying to reinstall vista, I got around the bios password I encountered with "dogbers" tool. When I change the boot sequence so the cdrom is at the top of the list it still doesn't boot. I enabled the F12 Function So It will display what it's finding during the boot, It is finding two of the 8 in the sequence every time, But every time it is different. Say it finds 1.sata & 4.usb key one time, I will change cdrom to 1. or 4., Then when I boot again and press F12 the two it finds have changed, I don't understand, Can anyone help me please?

    Acer Aspire 5100
    Windows Vista premium

    Cpu type: AMD turion 64 x2 mobile technology TL-50
    Cpu speed: 1600 Mhz
    System bios version V3.1.3
