Default ******* Vista Help PLEASE

This is the second time I get into this problem

For some reason, all of a sudden after I sign in to my user ID, I get a black screen, can not see anything except the mouse cursor.

The first time I did reinstall the OS

This time, I am not willing to, but, also I get this message after a black screen

Windows cannot access the specified device, Path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. On top of this window message there is the path to the file

It is a new HP laptop.

Should I go ahead and install Win XP pro ?

Thanks for your help

I am sending this message from my Desktop, running Win XP Pro

I dont really know much about Vista but if i were you i would just continue to run with XP or contact a technician at HP and see if he/she can diagnose the problem for you.

Also it could be your video card. not all video cards support vista
