\015 We updated this laptop now when it starts it usally goes into the screen that lets you pick to start in safe mode last known confifration that one.. it tells me to load the orig. windows vista disk witch didn't come with the laptop. any ideas?\015

Answers :

Since you don't have the backup software to boot from, look at this information on the Microsoft website concerning FDISK/MBR.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/69013
If you have any Anti-virus installation CD you might boot from that to see if it contains a FDISK or similar repair application.
Be careful with FDISK, as it is capable of deleting the drive partitions, leaving you no choice but to re-install Vista using an installation disk.
If you are successful, I strongly recommend that you check your system's accessories for the making of backup disks. Vista should have a utility built in to make the disks, and the disks will sure prove handy in the future.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
Hi poemmaker2, mostly hardware and software changes find your Operating System disc to also update your windows installation like what you are having now. So definitely you must have an operating disc so that whenever there are updates of your unit and getting errors like a tremendous virus attack on your computer, it will surely avoid or lessen problems.
