    If you have gone through Vista Startup Repair, do it again.

    Or use System Restore and go back to a point before the driver installation.

    How old is this machine?

    hi thanks for replying. i have run the startup recovery several times and it says that no problem was found. i also tried restoring to a previous time and it says there are no restore points. i dont know why this is as i have had it turned on.

    If you need to recover files, you better put the drive in a working machine and try to copy them. You can also use some recovery softwrae from another machine.
