MS Vista Windows patches broke my desktop

Last week (24/06/2009) my HP Pavillion slimline running Vista loaded 2 MS Windows patches. After restarting, the Vista interface would not appear, just the white mouse cursor on a black screen, instead of the desktop UI. The boot process worked fine up until the desktop is supposed to appear. I haven't made a system recovery disk, and safe mode start up ends results in the same issue. Anyone know how I can roll back the patches and hopefullly resolve this issue?

    Thanks rob151, but I'm not getting the 'last good settings' option. As a shutdown could not be initiated after this problem occurred, Vista automatically starts with a Windows Recovery DOS screen, which gives me a choice of Safe Modes start up, but no 'last known good settings' option.

    I've also looked at teh Boot Menu, but I don't get any relavant option there either.

    Press F8 as you turn on your computer and when the boot menu comes up, choose last known good configuration and see if you can get back into windows that way.

Reboot the computer and then press f10 this should get you a screen with a text line that says safe mode,with net or command scroll down to last settings that worked and try that ps. you really need to make a recovery disk. its that important.

Do you have all the latest patches and are you sure you computer is free of virus or malware? If you feel you are protected then did this occur shortly after an MS Patch/update. Check and see if you can either unistall the last patch or boot to the last known good configuration (press F8 between the bios splash screen and the windows splash screen at boot up). If you are not up to date on your security, then start with that and then work your way into a repair...

You might need to go to the manufacturer's website and look to see if they have any patches to download for that program. It might just need a patch to fix the problem. I hope I could help.

How to restart hp pavillion 7965 desktop


Hi there. Try these steps:

1. On restart, press F8. This should bring you to a screen with various boot options.

2. Select "Last known good configuration". Windows then may load correctly.

3. If this doesn;t work, try the same thing. This time select "boot in Safe Mode". If Windows now loads in Safe Mode you should be able to restart and Windows may load correctly after this.

4. If these two both fail, you may have to repair Windows...

Banner printing


got to be a setup problem. in your printer program there is a page for margins, page breaks. set all for zero or disable page breaks. as far as vista goes, personally I never liked it. I am running firefox and have been for the past three years. It doesn't have all the problem back doors like windows internet explorer. rarely do I ever get patches for the program - it just don't need them.AND firefox is completely compatible with 99% of all running programs.
