My Wifes laptop an acer aspire 3690 running a 2Ghz
processor, 1024 mb ram, 80 gig hard drive and vista operating system will not boot up.It has seldom been on the INTERNET but as we have now gone wireless I took the opportunity to update vista. the updates all downloaded and installed fine. restarted the laptop as per updates instructions and it started to configure the updates.it closed itself down and now wont re boot. when switching on the acer screen comes up with a progress bar moving to about 3/4 along and then it goes off. I can get into the boot menu and bios but cant seem to do anything from their. I cant get into safe mode using F or f anything for that matter. so any advice and or help on this problem would be gratefully received.

thanks in advance
