Vista crashed. Tried a recovery disk, though not the Vista disk, which did not fix anything. System won't start in safe mode or any mode. Says there may be a hardware or software update problem. How to I determine what happened and how do I fix it? I don't know if it is a virus as I cannot run a scan either. I tried to restore at an earlier date and that won't load either. Same crash.
