    Hi there, i have got a dell 630m laptop but when i switch it on, it shows the windows vista green bars moving then it changes to a black screen. After that i can't do nothing, waiting 1 hour but still stays on black screen. Also i think my hard drive is gone so i wont be able to reinstall or install a new operating system. Please correct me if im wrong. Please help. Thanks

    Hi,

    Not sure if it is applicable in your case but I had the exact same problem last week on a Dell XPS Lappy.

    Vista loading progress bar ... then nothing.

    I was able to start in safe mode with networking, and surf - but never got the desktop to boot in normal mode.

    If you wish then check back through all my posts by clicking this link, to take you to the thread I started on 20 Oct.

    I thought it was a hardware fault, I was given guidance on things to try - but the only thing that got me up and running was a factory restore.
