Ok..... SO I have a Dell Demention 4600 With Intel Pentum 4. A while back i had a problem. I couldnt update Windows because that caused a system falure every time... I tried everything that i could but nothing worked. that caused my windows firewall to shut down and so i got a virus or something that i couldnt get rid of and that eventually caused my system to fail (already tried every removal techniques lol)... Whenever i startup, the computer immediately after showing the loading windows screen, goes to the bluescreen. This one is different than anyone that i have ever seen before. It gives no explanation and just gives numbers. (half of wich are cut of the screen for some reason. the ones that i can see are always 0 [the format is normal bluescreen error number format]). I have tried to bacup my files to ipod or cd but none of those work in safemode (i can still run that). so i tried putting my harddrive into a friends computer but it wouldnt accept it. so now i want to just format the harddrive and re-install windows. but theres one problem. that would mean losing all of my data. In some other posts taht i have looked at in the past there has been mention of a program that brings back data from before the harddrive was formatted. is this true? and where would i get it (and if you know of one thats free cuz im flat broke that would be appriciated lol). Just ask if you need anymore info. If you have another way to fix things that is also by all means appriciated. Thank you for any help in advance.

Hi 11010110...

How did you hook the drive up in your friends computer?

What have you tried to get the machine running?

ipod is frozen and stuck on

I can't guarantee the safety of your data, but have you tried taking the battery out of the iPod and leaving it for a few minutes to see if it resets?
