To deal with startup problems in Windows Vista, one needs either an installation DVD or an Anytime Upgrade DVD.
Otherwise, one can download the necessary disc from Windows Vista Recovery Disc Download.
If necessary, use System Restore in the System Recovery Options dialog box to restore Windows Vista to a restore point that was created earlier.

I don't know if that model will boot from a USB-connected optical drive or not. Perhaps the BIOS can tell you.
If not, you're stuck replacing the internal optical drive.

Hello , I am having the same problems, i just submitted a post today over the same issues. I put my recovery CD disk or whatever the disk is that came in the box and attempted startup repair which got me back to all of mystuff except my system now runs insanely slows and says Windows Host stopped working. I tried system restore without the disk in and keeps telling my restore was unsuccessful and i have tried like 3 different restore points. I am not computer savvy and i am as well having heeps of difficulty.
