I upgraded my computer from Windows ME to XP a few months ago. Everything ran smoothly and I have no clue what caused my computer to crash (no new devices, installed software, etc.)
After restarting the computer, it ran checkdisk (showed some files or something were truncated) then continued to loading. It only goes to the initial XP screen and then restarts. It now runs checkdisk (doesn't show any files truncated now) tries to load XP and restarts; just a continuous loop.
I have tried to boot using CD to get into recovery but always get an error message. I've even tried booting with a ME CD with no luck. When booting with ME CD, it starts with Dr-DOS and ends up saying No FAT32 Volumes Found, exiting then a couple more line and says No NTFS Volumes Found, exiting.
I really just want to get some important files off that computer...could care less if I get it back working correctly since I have already had to purchase a new one but it would be nice!
