ok, follow wannabe1's instructions.

You can also restart and see if you get that blue screen again
which you probably will
but i've had the bsod and restarted and it didn't show up again and started normally
but that's my experience

your's is different

No...you won't loose your data.

If you can use the RC.iso to reach the command prompt, type chkdsk /r and press "Enter". This will perform a very long 5 stage check of the file system. Once it completes and you are back at the prompt, type exit and press "Enter" to close Recovery Console. You machine will restart...and hopefully load the Windows desktop.

Note: This is a very long check...be patient. It may appear to hang or even to back up a few times...this is normal behavior...let it finish. It may take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to complete.

Download the ISO Recorder for 32 bit Vista as that is the operating system you'll be creating the disk on. Install it on the laptop machine.

When you have the RC.iso file downloaded, right click on it and choose "Copy Image to CD" from the right click context menu. That will open ISO Recorder...you should be able to just burn it using the default settings.

Put the disk you create in the broken machine and restart. Watch for the prompt to "Press any key to boot from CD" and press the spacebar when you see it. You will be asked which installation you want to log on to...select this by number (usually 1) and press "Enter". When you are asked for the Administrator password, leave it blank and just press "Enter". Then you should end up at the C:\WINDOWS> prompt...that's where you type chkdsk /r (note the space before /r) and press "Enter" to start the check.

Save it to your hdd. I usually save it to the desktop so it's easy to find. Then burn it to a CD-R disk.

That is usually the date the HDD was formatted.

When you got the prompt, was it C:\WINDOWS> or was it C:\>?
