vista will not boot up get black screen

Microsoft Windows vista ultimate w/ sp1...
September 19, 2009 at 15:55:56
Specs: Windows Vista, 2.834 GHz / 3326 MB
When I boot up it freezes after I see the hardware loading and I have to shut down the computer, go into the bios and reset default settings, it will boot to a screen that gives me 2 options:

Continue with system resume
or
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu

Anyone know what causes this? TIA

I think you need to do a start-up repair ,From a disc , this tutorial from bleeping computers explains how

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tut...

You may also not have a Full install disk , so this will do .

Nb. you do not need to use a torrent downloader for this disc just
double click on the down loaded link and select the browser of choice .


Some people have reported problems when they have burned this disk with Nero , I have had no problems with Vista's burner or Cdburnerxp ,
just slow the burn speed down a bit ,

If start-up repair does not do it for you try system restore .

A repair from a disc will work when sometimes it does not from a HDD .

No need to do start up repair as suggested above.

Anyone know what causes this?

Failed windows resume loader from Sleep mode. For more info, click on the link below.

Thanks much for the replys. XPUser, how do I fix this without going into the startup repair utility on the Vista DVD?

I think XpUser is saying is you are not actually shutting down but hibernating , I must confess this did not occur to me but the message indicates that this is the case ,
What colour is the power button on your machine ? is it brown , if so this does not shut down , to change what this button does ,

this will explain it for you .

It could be a problem with the hibernate file. Worst case, choose to lose the file and reboot
