I asked the electronics store to not wipe the Vista OS
When new owner starts up, computer will not go beyond the "Welcome" screen
Did it load Vista OK when you sold it. I presume you did try it
Will it start in Safe Mode.
Or Last Known Good.
As I presume that Vista was pre-installed ansd that you do not have the Vista CD/DVD
then if it was pre-installed and the recovery partition and allied software is still in place then do this
If Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer:
- Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
- Do one of the following:
- If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
- If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
