    Insert the Vista DVD, reboot, choose Repair then choose Startup Repair.

    And if, like so many people, you don't have a Vista DVD, try tapping Function 8 when the system first starts up to see if that shows you the Advanced Boot menu, then select Safe Mode.

    Not really clear to me what is happening. When you turn the laptop on do you get anything on the screen?

    If you have more than one stick of RAM, it could be worth removing one and seeing if the system runs on the other. If that fails, swap them out and try again. If you have a PC, pop the laptop on to its monitor in case your screen has gone but that wouldn't explain a boot loop.
