I received the blue screen of death on my PC w/ XP Home Edition w/ error code Stop 0x000000D1. I have tried to boot into safe mode and safe mode w/ networking but it comes up with all these multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\"name".sys messages then goes back to the blue screen.

Please help - I just recently added 800+ pictures from a vacation and don't want to lose them. Thanks.

Hello Itrexdad.... Welcome to GeeksToGo, :) :) :)

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time. Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly then.

Let's get your pictures safe first by doing the following.

Get Puppy Linux Download this file:
puppy-2.16-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso
and burn it to cd
..
if you don't have a burning program that will burn .ISO files get burncdcc from my signature below ..a small FAST no frills iso burning program...

NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its puppy-2.16-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start


make sure in the bios the cd drive is the first boot device....

put the cd in the cd drive..boot your computer....puppy will boot and run totally in ram...if your hardware is in good working order you will know...
after you get it running and your at the desktop...you take the puppy linux cd out and then you can use the burner to copy all yor data to cd/dvds
you can also use it to backup your data to a external usb harddrive..You must have it hooked to the computer when you boot up with puppy.

Let me know when this step is completed and then we will try some other options to egt the system back up and running

I don't see the original file you had said to download.

Sorry I'm being difficult.

Then follow the directions in post # 2 from downloading the burning software BurnCdcc
This will create a bootable disk for you
Make sure you change the boot sequence in your bios to allow the cdrom to be the first boot device.

Drag and Drop
or
Copy and Paste
Either way is just as good as the other.

You will need to go into the file manager I believe it is.
Then to the folder or folders for the files.
