laptop was working fine, vista no service pack then we download and install sp1, and it no longer boots. comes up with Launch startup repair or start windows normally, which ever I choose it loads then gets to teh windosws loading bar and BSOD's. same thing happens trying to get into safe mode, last known good config, booting from Vista recovery disk too..

anything i can try or is it completely messed? business laptop, needs data intact. i'll try get a vista disc, and then do a repair? see if that fixes it.

You need to try to boot with only 1 ram stick, 1 hard drive, psu and video card...that means unplug all other drives, and remove all other pci cards and see if you can boot. If you can and all is well you can start adding back until you find the rejected hardware. If you still cannot boot, then one of the components I listed is bad.
