I suggest you save your money (and time) and buy a new laptop.
I fixed it, it was a hard drive malfunction, i took out the internal hard drive, then was able to access bio's , re attached the hdd then ran system check and recovery, i reinstalled windows vista and all of the damn updates its running great again ....
