    Help me please! I just bought a Vista machine (new Presario laptop) about
    three weeks ago. Vista's been fine, except for a few issues (mostly related
    to iTunes). But last night, my computer did one of those Windows Explorer
    errors. I restarted, and now I can't get it to boot up again!

    Windows wants to do the automatic disk check ... black screen w/ white text;
    "One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency....."

    It gets stuck - says "CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)... 9 percent
    complete (88301 of 98112 file records processed)

    And there it stops. I can't do anything but power down by holding down the
    power key for 5 seconds or so.

    (BTW, when it tells me that I can cancel the CHKDSK by pressing any key
    within the countdown, that doesn't work. It doesn't respond.)

    HELP! What can I do?

    OK nevermind. Crisis over for now. I did the F8 thing and was able to startup
    in safe mode.
