oh folks here is what i have a del inspiron 1501 with window vista
every thing was fine till friday last week i updated my window and micor soft update and thats when it happen
what it is doing is nothing when you turn it on thw microsoft corporation little green bar will come on and do its little scan thing then i get a black screen saying window error recovery..windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. If Windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, Startup Repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. If power was interrupted during startup, choose start Windows Normally. (Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)

Launch Startup Repair (recommended)
Start Windows Normally

i have done the launch startup repair and it will do it thing and then back to this page again

and it also does the same thing when you do the start windows norally
and i have tryed to put my son window vista cd in to try and reboot it that way with no luck
it just seems like every time i do any kind of update it screws all 4 of my pc up
i have one that is in the corner collecting dust that i can not fix and i guess my little laptop will go in the corner next unless you folks can help me that is
please i need your help
