help please vista freezing/restarting

  2drewej 17:05 13 Sep 2008

Hi until a few days ago my pc was fine, but now i cant even get past the vista logo on startup...

the pc loads fine but hangs just before the vista logo - its just a blank screen with the mouse cursor. if i leave it for a while the pc show 'windows is restarting' and then it hangs at that :(

i have tried vista startup repair/system restore and booting into safe mode - but still no luck.

if i load bart pe there are no graphical issues and everything appears normal..

please help! thx

have been seeing many similar post around forums since the last windows update, i thought a hotfix had been issued, anyway you can uninstall the last set of updates (4 i think) run restore from the o/s disk

thx for the reply, well i tried restore from the disk but there was only 1 restore point avalible which was no good, is there a way to manually install the fix as i do have another computer i can download from..
