    Alright, so check this out:

    6/4/09: Computer was running smoothly.

    6/5/09: I turn the computer on and instead of booting Windows Vista, it boots Acer Arcade Deluxe. I click to exit from it and it restarts the computer entirely. Then, to make things worse, it flashes a load bar at the bottom of a black screen that is titled: Windows is loading files. Then it has the Microsoft load screen. Then it goes to a grey screen, saying that it failed to start up and startup repair could not automatically repair the error.

    Anyone have any idea what might have happened?

    Can you boot into safe mode?

    Can you do a system restore?
