I have an Acer laptop that came pre-installed with Windows Vista. I'd been using it for a couple of months and then I found an "anytime upgrade" CD and installed it realizing I hadn't done it when I got the computer. Bad move.

Now I have two problems :

1. Whenever I start the computer, I get a boot menu with two options

Windows Vista Home Edition
Windows Vista Home Edition

2. When I load the computer, files that I previously had on the computer are no longer accessible from my profile. They're now in a windows.old directory. I can move them over... but might help diagnose what's going on.

3. Some programs can't read my video card now and won't run as a result. How do I determine what kind of video card I have and get the correct drivers back in?

I realize I don't have a lot of info here, particularly on #3. I'm fairly new to Vista. With Windows 98 and XP, I was fairly used to the configuration settings and consider myself a fairly savvy OS user in general

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Matt

I realize I wasn't clear on #1... what I am trying to do is get the boot menu to go away so that the computer automatically boots into vista and does't display the boot menu. Thanks.
