Today, I removed some old software from dad's vista, and installed SP1.
After which the computer restarted and it went into a "black" screen. I left it running for a few hours, and the laptop was really hot.
I tried to get into safemode, start from last known good start up, but nothing seemed to work.
i know it stops after loading \windows\system32\drivers\cplir.sys
what's going on and how can I fix his computer?
I'm still unable to fix my install. Repair and restoring the OS fail. The laptop has the vista partition built into it. I can't boot through a USB, and my other computer doesn't have a cd/dvd writer
I tried chkdisk /f and although it fixed some errors, I still get the black screen of death.
