PCSTATS explains what you need to know to bring a crashed Vista PC system back to life. When Windows Vista fails and won't boot, separate the hardware from the software and get it fixed with the help of this Beginners Guide. Windows Vista appears to be at least as resilient and stable as Windows XP in operation, yet it's still quite vulnerable to a variety of errors which can leave the operating system in an non-bootable state.
