Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop. I install all the automatic updates. Recently Vista downloaded Service Pack 1 and I installed it. After the installation my laptop stopped working. I can only use BIOS now, Vista doesn't load. Only black & white menu appears with several options to choose (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), Start Windows Normally) but none of them works.


Answers :

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.
