I have a Gateway computer that is restarting itself over and over no matter how I choose to start it. I looked at the "How to repair Windows XP" post pertaining to this problem, but I didn't find the info to meet my situation. I only have my Recovery Gateway type discs that only mention Windows XP and since my Windows XP was pre-installed I don't have an actual retail disc. My roommate has an actual disc which I loaded up to get the screens that are shown in the "How to repair Windows XP" post, but when I get to the third blue screen of "Windows XP Professional Setup", there is no listing that I have Windows XP installed on my computer. So I don't even get the option to choose it in order to hit "R" to repair it. Instead, I get three options:
*To set up Windows XP on the selected item, press ENTER.
*To create a partition in the unpartitioned space, press C.
*To delete the selected partition, press D.
And I read that if a Windows XP installation is not listed then it might be too corrupted. Well then what are my options? I have a lot of documents that I don't want to lose. Someone please help me out. My solution might be buried in the How to Repair Windows XP post and I just missed it. Ask me any questions about any information that i have forgot to provide. Thanks in advance!!!!!
