Okay, I don't know how or why it happened, but the computer won't boot. When you press the button on the front, it all seems to work fine... the screen with Fujitsu-Siemans and Intel comes up okay. But, then it asks how I want to start Windows; in Safe Mode, Safe Mode With Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration or Start Windows Normally. I've been on all of them and all encounter the problem. In safe mode, it tells you what's going on (I think that's what it's showing anyway), and it stops dead at C:\WINDOWS\system32\Drivers\agp440.sys and then shuts off. I googled this and found that it had something to do with video... I don't really know. When loading it on any of the other ones, it just shows the XP boot screen and then it shuts off unexpectedly.
I wasn't the last one who used the computer, it was my sister and apparently she didn't do anything. I wouldn't normally mind about something like this... but the Windows XP Recovery CD isn't working [due to a scratch on the disc I believe. Fujitsu want us to pay £44 to replace it! Something about Microsoft Licensing makes the price so high.] and the computer's got all of my essays and assignments from the last academic year on it! I saved them there because that computer is rarely used anymore and I thought it'd be a safe place.
Please could somebody help... If I can't get to those essays I'm gonna have to collect the ones I submitted and have to re-type them up!
