What is it doing/not doing? Is it just booting up, then doing nothing? Do you have the Windows Vista (I HATED Vista) disks?
Odds are your BIOS is set to boot from a CD/DVD-ROM. When you turn it on hit the specified F-key (usually f2 or f8) and change it to boot onto the harddrive. Or put the disk in the CD/DVD-ROM and try to boot it from that and troubleshoot from Windows.
I hope that makes sense. I think that's what may be going on. The boot sequence, or a glitch in installation. In all honesty, Windows 7 is way better than Vista.
