Ok do this:

 

First download and make a recovery disc for Vista from this link: http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/

 

Put the disc and restart your computer and if prompted press any key to boot from the disc.

Choose your language settings > click Next > Click Repair your computer > Select the operating system you want to repair > click Next > On the System Recovery Options menu > click Startup Repair > Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

 

See if that works, reply here if you need further help.

After you download the ISO image from the website I gave above, you need to burn the ISO image into a CD/DVD. To know how to burn a ISO image, see this guide: http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/G/Burning+ISO+Images+to+a+CD+or+DVD

 

The process of burning depends on your burning software.
