My machine was installing upgrades from Microsoft (XP) and we had a power cut which crashed the machine. Now, the machine won't start. When I turn it on it says that there was a power issue, but trying to use last settings or normal settings leads to a blank screen with only the cursor showing.

If I start it in Safe mode - I get to a screen that says (Build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254: Service Pack 2) and stays on that. The rest of the screen is blank except for "Safe Mode" in each corner, and the cursor still moves.

Question is: what's wrong, can it be fixed and how do I get my stuff back!! Cheers

Sadly it came preloaded on the machine, so no CD

It does, you get the Microsoft Windows Xp holding page for about 60 seconds, then it goes blank except for the cursor, and stays like that
