  1. Upon starting my Dell Laptop with Vista Home Premium it goes as if to to start Vista but quickly displays the Hibernation screen and then locks on this screen. It did startup correctly once so I went into a full shutdown, but on startup I get the same but this time it is the logging off screen.

    Any idea's?

    Update
    Managed to force it to start the original dvd software, this gave me the option of Safe Mode. From there I was able to shut down properly and it now starts up correctly.
