Hello,
Hi,
I'm trying to fix some problems with my Windows Vista Repair Disc. However, none of the menus will stay up for more than 1 or 2 seconds at a time. When the Disc repair starts, it shows the repair starting and then screen goes black.

Same thing happens with any shorcut I type (F8, F2, F12, etc...) Even when I try to start in Safe Mode or get to the BIOS screen, I get the screen for 2 seconds max and all goes black (or moves onto the next step to eventually turn black altogether)

I cannot run the Vista repair disc without seeing what is going on. Any ideas on how I can make the screen last longer???




To follow up on close22's response, how do I do this? When I try to F2 to get to BIOS, the screen only stays up for a second or two. Am I not in the right spot? I'm not sure how to fix this when all screens (including BIOS) disappear so quickly..

Hi there,

Get in bios load default settings and reboot from installation cd and fix it.

Thanks
