What do you mean "the process is now endless? What type of restore were you attempting?

Normal system restore with a restore point(date), now it only displays a blue screen, I have tried many options: even to boot in safe mode but the same thing is happening..

I haven't much experience with Vista restore. That said, this might be hardware related. If that is the case then system restore isn't going to help.

What led up to your reason for attempting a system restore?

The system was too slow.

How long has the restore process been going on?

You probably are going to abort the restore process and try booting the computer to see what happens. You may need to re-install Vista or perform a factory restore if your Vista came pre-installed.

What is the brand and model of your computer?

You didn't answer all questions in #5. Also, do you have Vista full version or a restore set of disks?

Sorry about that, I missed that in #6. Did the computer come with Vista installed then or possibly WinXP? If XP is your Vista DVD an upgrade version?

Look at the link directly below this sentence to see if a repair of Vista is appropriate.

Do you need to recover personal files prior to performing a factory restore? Factory restore will put the computer back to the state in came from the manufacturer. If you need to recover files there are some methods.

Do you store everything on the same partition?

Link below explains the procedure to perform a factory restore.

Thanks for your reply, I have backup for every of my files, so I don't need to recover any. The computer came with vista installed. I don't store everything in one partition. I will check the links you sent, thanks a bunch
