Hello, I'm having a problem with my computer. I have Windows Vista. I start It up and it starts up until the Microsoft Corporation green bar then I get a black screen without any cursor. I have tried all the safe modes *but all come up to this one file and stays there. I have tried Repair Your Computer, I used System Restore but it tells me that I have corrupt files on C: that need to be fixed I try to fix them but the window goes gray and nothing happens. I try to use System Repair I left it on for four hours and nothing happened. I only have the vista reinstallation disk which does not seem to work. I believe I have a problem with my OS which I think Its due to my pressing and holding the power button repeatedly due to the fact that my WLM (Windows Live Messenger) was freezing my computer and all other programs on it which led me to immediately switch off the computer. After I did this for the 20th supposedly I couldn't get back on to my Vista. Before this I kept getting a message on startup which I repeatedly ignored: Windows will check for corruption on file C: I always skipped this. I also haven't backed up my files so I can't do anything that will erase my data.*
I need help please with a guide on how to fix this problem. I am also on my iPod Touch which is the only thing giving me access to the Internet and strange enough I somehow got my iPod to charge through my computer.*

Hi -

It sounds like the HDD may be bad.

Run HDD diagnostics --> https://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287
