Windows Vista won't boot

I am using Sony Vaio CS, Windows Vista Home Edition. Right now it won't boot at all.
Sometime ago it started having the minidump blue screen and would restart the computer.
Now, it doesn't have that no more, but once i turn on the power button, the chkdsk screen appears.
After it deleted and, replaced, fix corrupted files, my computer only goes to a black page after the windows loading screen.

I tapped F8 key and tried all the options (safemode, last known config, etc.) none of the options work.
I tried repair computer, but it also didn't work after it restarted the computer.

I can only go on computer to retrieve files by using the linux puppy live disk. All my programs, doc, media are still there.

I made a recovery cd for Vista from my laptop awhile back and couldn't get into the recovery console, only the repair option. (Not sure if the CD is correctly, fully burned)
I don't have any system restore points or any backup image.

I don't know what happened to my computer all of a sudden. It seemed to get worse after the chkdsk. It deleted lots of files.

Please help me if you can. Thank you.


EDIT: I went into Vaio Recovery Center by tapping F10 on startup and did a complete system restore. Problem solved. Would you kindly close this thread. Thank you.
