Vista doesn't work

#1
Hi everyone! I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ240E which uses Vista.. The other day when I turned it on it didn't open.. It says there's an error in Windows recovery.. The other options didn't work me.. Whatever I chose it just returns me to that page where it says that there is windows recovery.. I downloaded and burned the Vista recovery disc and since it didn't work for me, I went to post here after trying it..

I tried using the repair function then it says to use system restore.. When I clicked it after a while it says this If you have recently attached a device to this computer or portable music player, remove it and restart your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

this is what the startup repair diagnosis and repair log contains..

Code:
Last Successful boot time: 12/14/2008  8:32:09 AM (GMT)
Number of repair attempts: 6
