Greetings All, Any help that you might give is greatly appreciated. I attempted to reinstall Vista Home Premium on a Dell Inspiron 1720. I did the normal backup of materials, and then put in the disc, instructing it to do a full wipe and then a reinstall.It said that it would reboot a few times in the process, and to leave it alone. I started the process and then left home.When I got home, it was on a black screen, with a white mouse pointer.Nothing responds on the keyboard except to use the power button.When I attempt to reboot, it gives me the instructions to use the 'repair your computer' prompt on the Vista install disc.I tried all the options on that, including a scan that took hours, all to no use.I've tried the re-do the reinstall 3x now, all to the same result.I got out the diagnostics disc and ran a full diagnostic on the HDD (8 hours), and it passed with flying colors. Any ideas of what to do next? thoughts?
