Hi, i have a Packard Bell laptop with Windows Vista
The graphics card on the laptop is no longer working. The laptop halts at a black screen when loading windows, however was working perfectly in safe mode.
I spoke to technician who said to reinstall the operating system, so i used F8 and then chose 'Repair Computer', then selected Packard Bell recovery and chose to reinstall my laptop, which completed successfully.
The laptop restarts, and as it cant get to windows it can't complete the operating system installation, i try going into safe mode which loads but i get an error saying something along the lines of 'Windows cannot complete installation in safe mode. Shut down and try in windows'. I am stuck now and can't use the laptop at all. I want to be able to use the laptop atleast in safe mode, so need to complete the vista installation.
I can access the Command Prompt by through F8 and then choosing 'Repair Computer'. Can i use the command prompt to complete the installation.
Or is there any other way I can complete the installation?
