  1. Yesterday i get home from work and my gf tried to reinstall our router software using our windows install cd. Needless to say she doesnt know what she did now everytime i turn it on it goes straight to a black screen, no boot menu or anything. It is an hp pavillion notebook running windows vista. I have reformatted and reinstalled windows a dozen times on different pc's but this isnt giving me a boot menu or any way into bios. Boots up to blank black screen, any key i hit results in a / running down the entire screen.

    Please help any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Sevens
