Vista Freeze at Welcome...

By travisright ·
Hello all I just installed Vista about 4 hours ago and everything was fine. I got updates, installed some drivers, etc. But then I restarted my computer and I ran into some trouble. I first got a bile blank screen after the green bar, I managed to run the mem tool and got all the way to the login screen however my computer freezes at this point. Please help me I didn't keep my backup of XP so I really need this to work.

System Specs:
AMD Athlon? 64 X2 dual-core processor 3800+
1 gig of ram
250 GB 7200 RPM IDE hard drive
Radeon X800 video card (On board Nvidia as well)

Umm in response to other posts I really don't care about any data on the hard drive right now as I installed off of another OS and I backed up everything important on my external hard drive, so there is nothing of importance on the main drive.

You could try a Repair Install of Vista

By starting off the DVD again and go through the process of installing till you reach the Install Screen and chose Repair the existing installation.

I don't know how ell it works or even if it does as this is way to early in the Vista Cycle to even be attempting to try this OS on a Sensitive Computer.

But I would first remove the HDD and connect it to a USB Caddy and save all your data off it so you are not in the position of loosing everything. At this point instigate a DR Plan and follow it religiously. Computers are very cheap and your data is extremely expensive to recover if it's necessary and I'm not just thinking of Software Problems here HDD's have been known to fail and when they do they take everything with them unless you are willing to spend the several thousand $ involved to recover everything the last 40 GIG HDD that I had to send away to recover the data from cost 46K for the company involved. It makes the cost of any computer look really cheap doesn't it?
