mm... so I left the pc on all night and this morning, nothings changed, after the dell loading screen, the blinking underscore screen, It just freezes there with the lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll Line all white... Does this mean that windows wont load?
Im not really sure what I did or what I should be doing now... I didnt get my datas backed up from the PC and I really want to fix this problem asap. Since V-Day is around the corner and whatnot...

A few reboots ago, before I tried using Recovery console again I had the following message:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
<Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.
Please reinstall a copy of the above file.

I dont know why I dont get it now... :)

Im sorry If Im getting everyone so annoyed of my posts, Im just a bit desperate to fix this problem.


Dude, have you read anything I've posted? :) Do the linux thing and you will be able to backup your data before risking repairing or reinstalling windows.

this is the reason you need to do it...

I think this problem is getting worse...
MY Boot up screen is getting slow and I have to restart my pc almost everyday now...
Oh gosh...
EDIT: Oh my god, Now the recovery console wont work... ><
It can't fix the problem...
When I boot up the pc, it says cannot find hardware or something now... please help me.

...

reread post 4 and 6...after doing these things report back...
or if you don't want my help...just say the word

first...stop quoting what I said...it only makes it harder to read your reply...just your reply is enough...
then when you are asked to do something...please let us know if you did any any results...good or bad...
like...did you set Hibernate and standby to never...
its hard to figure out the problem when you don't / won't do what I would do if it was setting on my bench...
we need all the info we can get and by the process of elimination we will identify the problem and then fix it..

at this point I would still do a repair on xp...if your data is not backed up ...
then I would use linux to get it backed up first as been suggested already...
remember this...data that you don't have at least 2 copies of... is data you really don't care about ...
it should be copied to external hard drive and dvd's....
then do the repair...

Well it’s actually the easiest tool I know, if you’re going for linux to do your backup, Ubuntu has a relatively soft learning curve so I’d go with that.

you can get Ubuntu here....its a live cd...that just means it will run from your cd drive...
After your download begins you'll be given additional instructions on how to create and use your Ubuntu CD.
