Vista SP1 Problems RRS feed

  • Question


    I just recently purchased a new game, and it said it would help the game's performance to install Vista Service Pack 1.  While doing this, at the end of configuring updates, I recieved a black screen and "0xc0190036" with some message like keyboard.###  after it.  It never changed from this screen.  From different websites online, I read my best bet is to reinstall Vista.  I have an Acer computer, and I am not positive that I recieved a back-up CD with my purchase.  If I did, it must be lost, as my house is organized like an OCD freak would do.  I was able to find XP OS disk, and quickly put that in, only to soon realize this was a Dell OS.  This basically was a whole bunch of fail, and now it seems my only option is to boot "CD-ROM" with the Vista CD which I do not have in there...


    Any ideas?  Suggestions?


    Thanks in advance.
