For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Greetings, I have a good idea of what is going on and think I know how to fix it...
PLEASE FIRST BOOKMARK (add to favorites) THIS PAGE SO YOU CAN COME BACK WITH ME AFTER THE RESTART, and click ACCEPT if the issue is solved!!
1- Restart the computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly (As soon as you hit the power button start with F8), You will see the Boot Menu.2- Choose "Safe Mode WITH NETWORKING" and press ENTER3- Wait for windows to be completely loaded
4- Go do a system restore to a time when it did work.
Hopefully you can get into safe mode, let me know..
Sounds like you have crashed the Hard Disk Drive. You can pull it out and try to hook it up to another computer to pull your data. Or just put the Windows or recovery disc in the CD drive and hit F12 as soon as you boot the computer and select boot with the cd drive. Then when it comes up to the partition screen delete any old partition and make a fresh new one and format it with NTFS quick.Then it will run through windows installer and you can start fresh.
If you can't get the cd to start copying files to the disk we will know we have a disk failure.
I dont have a recovery disc that I know of.
The only disc I have with it is a windows anytime upgrade disc.
If you did a fresh (full) install not a upgrade there will be no users or passwords. You make a username and then assign a password XXXXX (if you want). You can always add passwords and change the computer name later.
It sounds like you did a upgrade and has a previous username on there with a password. Unless you mean sign on page as something different.
I will take a picture of a sign in page in Vista (what i think you mean)
Go through the install again by booting to the cd drive. Make sure you do a clean install and make a username but no password. If you need one make it later..
Also the stuff on my computer screen like words and pictures are all really big. How do I change that.
Yea that's normal when you do a fresh install it only has windows default drivers to start. The nice thing about VIsta and 7 is that it will find the drivers for you. Then it will do the reboot and will be normal again. In Windows XP and before you would need to find each driver (pain in the butt).
Now you will need to re-install all the applications you want to use, but at least now you have working computer.
If you need any more help setting up your computer please let me know.
Also run all windows updates and go to http://www.avast.com/index and download/install that for you free anti-virus (use the free trial period of the full version first)
