Windows vista home premium is attempting to start but all i can see is a black screen (i can move the cursor  but the login screen never appears) while the hard drive doesn't stop to blink

i would like to restore to a previous point but i can't access to the Desktop

Thank You in advance for your help

An excellent tutorial on using System Restore in Vista, complete with screenshots, is available here:

Windows Vista System Restore Guide

And it can be run from the Recovery Environment, which is Vista's substitute for the old XP Recovery Console:

And if the Acer Aspire 5720 is one of those far too many pcs that aren't supplied with a Vista install DVD by the computer manufacturer, You go to this site and download the makings for a recovery disk:
