A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
After several attempts of trying to boot in any safe mode, with last know good configuration this didn't work. I then tried to boot with the non-original Windows XP CD, everything goes fine until I received a message that no hard disk drive was detected in my computer. The drive itself is connected properly and worked perfect until this happened. I'm not sure as to what this problem is... I cannot access any info because the boot won't go past the blue screen of death. Could it be because I'm not using the original XP Recovery CD from Windows? I would really hate to lose all the important info from the hard drive.
My desktop is a Dell Dimension 600 with Windows XP Pro SP 3 running. Please ask for more specific info, I will give anything to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance!
