I've had my HP computer for quite some time now, and been running Windows XP home on it since i've first gotten it, and its worked very well for the last 3 years. That was, untill recently :rolleyes:
Whenever i turn on the computer, i'm getting this nasty little message telling me..
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might of caused this...
It then gives me the options to start in various Safe Modes, and the last known good config, and to start Windows normally, all of these options seem to restart the computer and return me to this screen.
Normally i would just the reformat the computer's hard drive (as i've done via the use of the XP discs on my personal laptop). But this is the family's computer and there is data on it that i dont wish to lose.
In summation, my problem is this;
I can't boot into windows XP (home)
I have the Windows XP disc
I DONT want to lose any data on the Hard Drive
I'm using a HP
Is there any hope for saving my family's little workhorse?
Thanks in advance.
