please someone help im getting really stressed out. for some reason my pc (vista 32bit) decided to stop working. i have spent hours on google trying to find a way to make it work again. i dont mind if i have to delete everything i just want a working computer again. i dont have an instillation disk and have tried to dowload one but couldnt get that to work. the f8 or f11 things dont work. safe mode/safe mode with cp wont work. the thing when it asks you to go to last known working point doesnt work. please can someone give me really simple instructions on how to do this as nowhere on the internet is helping

How old is the computer and when did you last give it a clean inside.

Check in the Bios that the first boot is the Hard drive and not the floppy even though you may not have one.

Were you having any change of the time or date before, Just wondering if it is a new CMOS battery that you need.
