Ok, so this morning i woke up and went to my computer to turn it on as normal, meaning i hit the space bar to wake it up on my way to make coffee. When i came back to check my e-mail it was turned off. No big deal, i turned it back on. It went through the usual windows deal with the bar thingy at the bottom of the screen, but it never started. About 5 minutes later i got a black screen that told me some changes had been made recently and wasnt allowing windows to start properly. So i selected the option to have windows find (and hopefully fix) the issue. That didnt work, so i tried several more times with no sucess, then i opened the bios menu to poke around a bit and see if i could restore some defaults to try and fix it, nothing. The computer is a Compaq Presario F700, WIndows Vista, AMD 64 AthlonX2 with NVIDIA Graphics card. Thats about all the technical info i can pull from the stickers on the thing. Its also a laptop if that matters in the solution. I cant think of anything i have changed recently other than about 2 weeks ago i went and turned off some things to make it start up faster, I.E. the games i never play that came on it and things like that, if it wasnt clear what the program was i turned off for start-up i did'nt touch it. Im also on my wifes computer because liek i said it seems completely dead. Thanks in advance for any help and/or info you can give.
