I have a advent 7201 laptop running vista.When i turn it on it has the blue advent screen then goes to a screen that says windows failed to start a recent hardware or software change might be the cause.


If windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, Startup repair can help diagnose and fix the problem.If the power was interrupted during startup, choose start windows normally.

launch startup reapair (recommended)
start windows normaily


If i try any of them the laptop can stay on a black screen for hours and wont load.I have tryed the F8 button and tryed repair your computer but it just does the same black screen it doesnt have anything else.PLUS i dont hvave a restore disc or what ever so what can i do .Would buying a new hard drive and re-installing vista or xp work ? or is their anything else i can do.

Did you not create the recovery disk when you first got the machine?

If not try this. http://support.thetechguys.com/layout.aspx?ID={00d0d1cc-ec48-4ce2-8ba8-65ff99e08d0e}&CatID={7613bc27-8bc7-45a0-94d3-0e6ec17c9907}

If not get any vista disk copy all the files and add the drivers from here and burn to a disk. http://support.thetechguys.com/layout.aspx?ID={9072d7fb-8e21-4e2a-967f-c919fb12662e}&CatID={7613bc27-8bc7-45a0-94d3-0e6ec17c9907}

Yes some now days make your create your own. I think its says in the manual to make one.

If you have a vista disk from another machine you can add the drivers and use that for a fresh install.
