just re-installing. Please help me out, if you need any additional info
please let me know.

Hi Ervinr82,

It may be a startup program causing this. Test to see by booting into
Safe Mode. This tutorial will show you how if needed. Just select "Safe

If it boots into Safe Mode without any problems, then it is a startup
program. You can then just Disable a startup program and keep testing
until you find the bad one, and Remove it. You can then Enable the
other back. Method One will show you how in this tutorial.

If all else fails, you can try doing a Repair install before having to
do a clean install. This will allow you to repair your Vista
installation without losing your files, settings, and programs.

Thanks alot for the help, it looks like alot of this could solve my problem,
I have tried to boot in safe mode, and it does like a charm, so i believe
your right. im just going to disable everything that isnt system required,
and go from there.

One other thing you might be able to help with, the repair install.. I have
a HP that i bought over the internet, and they didnt give me a disc, how do i
go about this?

thanks again for the info, and ill update if it works.
