    this seems to be as far as i can get

    I have had this happen to my personal laptop, I ended up upgrading the vista with a spare copy of 7. I don't know what happened of what the cause was. But I had the same symptoms, just a black screen and could not run the repair option from the cd (xp and vista).

    hello everyone,

    yes I have heard there was an issue with one of XP updates and according to my memory I have seen that been discussing in TechGuy several months ago(it was appeared in TSG home). The only solution is installing the previous version or installing a new version. here is an example
