    I exclude it's a problem of some process because my PC is slow from the
    beginning to the end, that is from start-up through account choice, until
    desktop start.. always! I deduce it's an hardware problem but I don't know
    what! :-(

    I already gave you my suggestions as what to do. If you choose not to do
    them, then take the machine to a professional computer repair shop. This
    will not be a BigComputerStore/GeekSquad type of place. There is no shame
    in doing this.

    I really don't have anything else to add to this thread, so EOT for me.

    How can your OS run slow and not be able to run at the same time? I am
    assuming you meant "can start, but runs slow".

    If you can get Vista to start, I suggest you walk through Malke's and my
    troubleshooting advice posted previously in this thread. If you have already
    done so, I think it is time to insert the Vista installation media in the
    drive, boot it and perform a repair installation. Back up your files first.

    If you can not get it to start at all, you are pretty much left with no
    other option but the repair installation.
