I noticed that sp2 for vista is out so I went to windows upgrade site and downloaded/installed sp2. So the computer is rebooting afterwards and my computer died, kinda. What I saw after the post was a trouble screen that told me I had a problem. At the top it said there was a problem that may have been caused by either new hardware or software recently installed. It said I should select from the menu below to fix the trouble. Cool I thought, but I found I had no keyboard input so I couldnt select what I wanted to do from that list. All I could do was watch the thing continue to load. When it was all said and done my computer displayed some sort of hexidecimal code, white letters/numbers on a black screen. Right now my computer is pretty much dead to me and I'm writing from another computer.
I've always just did what Windows asked me to do, followed the directions to the letter, etc. I have some experience with SP upgrades from using XP and upgrading when ever upgrades were availiable. I didnt expect to run into any problems with Vista updates. Windows has always done all the work and I've really never had a trouble with their OS.
I bet you can tell I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree when it comes to this level of technology. So if anybody can help me recover from this problem, please explain it as if you were talking to a complete idiot. Thank you.
