MY COMPUTER WILL NOT LOAD WINDOWS.

DEAR SIR OR MADAME:

 

MY COMPUTER WILL NOT START WINDOWS VISTA.

 

I PURCHASED THE HP PAVILION LAPTOP IN FEBRUARY 2008.

 

SINCE THEN I HAVE ATTACHED CAMERAS & USB FLASHDRIVES.

 

I MADE THE MISTAKE OF PULLING OUT THE DRIVES WITHOUT CLOSING OUT OF THEM PROPERLY.

 

SINCE THEN, MY COMPUTER WILL NOT START PROPERLY AND GIVES ME AN ERROR MESSAGE ABOUT DETACHING CAMERAS OR DRIVES OR CHECK FOR VIRUSES.

 

WINDOWS VISTA WILL NOT START AT ALL.

 

QUESTION:

 

1.  WILL LOADING THE WINDOWS VISTA DISK ON START-UP SOLVE THE PROBLEM?

2.  DO I NEED TO OBTAIN A COPY OF WINDOWS VISTA FROM 'HP', SINCE IT WAS NOT INCLUDED IN MY PURCHASE AT BEST BUY?

 

PLEASE RESPONDS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

 

SINCERELY,

 

SCOTT M. ZAWADZKI

Use HP Recovery ,press the F11 key right after you press power on. HP Recovery is used to reinstall Windows_also used to make a Recovery Disk set.
