Hi,

Start by removing the battery and drain the power from it pressing power,click here and have more instructions.

Good luck

NEVER REMOVE the internal battery! That will drastically reduce your motherboards life-span! However, in your current situation I'd advise you to re-install windows vista. Clearly there is a problem with your formatting, whether its corrupt or not, just re-install vista :)
