But anyways, I'm having a problem. Out of nowhere, my laptop is not working properly anymore. Well, I shouldn't say my laptop. More like Windows XP is not working anymore. One night, it was working fine, I shut it down fine, and the next morning when I turn it back on, Windows XP gave me this black screen saying that Windows had a problem. It said that if this is the first time it happened, to just start Windows normally but if not, to boot it on safe mode or from the last known good configuration. I tried all the options on that black screen, booting into safe mode with cmd, booting into safe mode, booting into safe mode with networking, booting normally and even booting from the last known configuration. None of these work. The safe mode puts stop at en error trying to load some .sys file (can't remember the name of it now) and when I try to boot from the last known good config or booting normally, during the Windows XP logo screen, Windows just freaks out and gives me a BSoD for like half a second and reboots again, which takes me to that black screen. If you need a picture of the BSoD, I managed to take two pictures of it with my camera so let me know if supplying that will help.
Anyways besides Windows, my computer is working fine. I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware problem since I booted into the computer with a LiveCD from Knoppix (a linux distro) and it worked fine. I could even access my hard drive and see all of my precious data.
So, any suggestions? I really don't want to lose my data. If I could just make my USB flash drive work with that Knoppix CD, I could move all of my data to my main desktop and just format the laptop's HDD and re-install Windows. But my flash drive doesn't seem to work with my Knoppix CD. Need to install the driver on it or something? I dunno, I have no knowledge of linux whatsoever.
Any help on this will help. Again, I don't want to lose my data.
