first of all, English isn't my native language so I may make some mistakes, sorry...
I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop, working on XP, and a problem that came up when I switched the laptop on. It was working 20 mn before.
the error was: invalid partition table
I tried to watch around the web for similar problems
As some people advice to run Partition Table Doctor, I did, found an error and it fixed it (or at least it said so).
Then, when I boot the computer, the error is gone, but I still cannot access to windows: it keeps on going to the dell diagnostics service.
I checked thoroughlly hard disk drive, with no error. Still no boot possible!
I have some very very important data on this HDD, does someone has an idea about what my problem could be, and then how to save data / launch windows ?
Ask for more information if needed,
edit: cannot repair existing windows, for some reason the OS is named as unknown, I am trying now to install windows on another partition that I can lose...
