So here is what happened, last week my computer was going through a windows update and my power went out and so when it says "do not turn off computer" well the computer was turned off.
So now when I try to boot up I get through the boot up screen and the screen that shows windows xp loading. then the black screen of death comes up saying your computer was improperly shut down yadda yadda then asks me to start in safe mode,last best configuration, or normally. Now I have tried ALL of the options on that screen and the same thing happens it thinks about it then I just start over back at the boot screen. Its a prepatual loop where I can't get anywhere.
I do have my XP CD and have tried this http://www.geekstogo...air-windows-xp/ but I never get to the repair part after I accept the terms I get this
*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 then a list of my C and D drives
I am trying to restore the computer with as much data as possible I have alot of important photos on there some of which were recently uploaded and haven't been backed up in another location eep!!!!
I am greatful for any help and guidance to you computer wizz out there!!
