No display after Vista start up !


Hello sir,

First of all, i m sorry for not searching the earlier threads & posting a new 1.
I m in urgent need of help, i hv my college paper presentation & my Vista is not working.

Here's the problem...

The Vista boots fine. I can see the green vista progress bar.
Then suddenly no display, only the mouse cursor is visible.

i tried to boot in safe mode, still same result, Also tried safe mode with command prompt, no use.

Then i did this; started Vista, pressed windows key + r (run); then typed explorer.exe ; nothing happened.

Also i dont have the Vista Installation disk with me, what should i do now ?

Kindly help, its urgent !!

thanks in advance



I have downloaded the vista recovery disk frm here ( Thanks a lot !), booted from the disk, tried to repair, then tried 2 restore 2 previous restore point, but nothing worked.
I am still getting blank display after vista boot up with only cursor visible..

I tried 1 more thg, pressed SHIFT key for 5 times, the sticky keys menu popped up & i could see that.

Pls help me get my Vista back..

Its updating maybe? Vista even for me takes awhile to load some days. Make sure you perform cleanup and defragging of the drive reguarly, disable startup programs/services you don't need, and make sure the software you do use is up to date.
