My name is Angela. My laptop was getting automatic updates (Vista) and had to reboot. Upon rebooting, a black screen appeared citing ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrupt. My hardrive is new (only in use for about 3 weeks). I was using the laptop all morning with no issues.
I cannot boot in any of the safemodes. I do have my vista dvd but don't know how to make it run, as when I turn on the laptop I still get the black screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
