Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have an older Dell Latitude, that I have been using for various secondary purposes such as storing pictures and music. The laptop crashed on me and I can't seem to get it back up. The OS is crashing while trying to reboot. I only have a couple of chances a day with this, because if I try recovery more than once or twice a day, the computer crashes even before the Dell screen appears. I have tried to run dignostics (F12) and the computer freezes half way thorugh the diagnostic process. This thing is dead in the water.
The first time I booted the computer after it crashed, I thought maybe the hard disk was full and I tried to get to the add/remove programs menu to remove older/less used apps. That's the futherest I got. The computer froze on me and the rest is history. I can't even seem to get this to the login screen anymore.
I would be ever so greatful as I have important documents on this computer that I need to get off, in the event this thing's lilfe has come to an untimely end. Please let me know your thoughts.
