Win XP will start but it will only go to the desktop (I can see my background, I hear the XP boot up sound, the mouse works and sometimes I get the hourglass).
I can CTRL ALT DLT and get the Task Manager but any commands,etc dont work. I did however get the Registry editor but that seems to be it.
What happened...when starting the computer I got an error saying SYSTEM file is damaged or corrupt. I did CHKDSK /R it found one error and fixed it. After restarting I got blue screen saying USB something error. Then restarted again and it got as far as loading the desktop background...but thats it. Safe mode does the same thing. Last good configuration and system restore dont work either. Its almost like CHKDSK did something where win xp cant find the location or something?!
I wish I could figure this out. I would like to get my files back. I always have fixed my own issues but this seems above my head. Anything I can do?! First time I asked for help on a forum. suggestions would be great ty
