Hi after waiting over 24 hours I turned the computer off. Now it can't load windows at all. Unfortunately the computer was pre-loaded with windows and I'm unable to re-install so it looks like I'll have to get a new computer now.
There are a number of things that you can do to repair Vista rather than ditch it and by a new one but they depend on the machine that you have and whether or not it came with a Vista installation disk. Can you tell us more about your PC?
