I had my computer going and the power source went out on it, so the computer shut down. I restarted the computer and was rebooting it in normal mode (vs. safe mode) and the power went out again.
Now, when I start the computer it asks if I would like to start in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, or safe mode with network. If I chose one it will give lines of code (ex. C:\windows.....) then the screen goes black and there is a solid cursor I can move but there is nothing else. Any thoughts or ideas. I really only care if I can recover my information (as lucky would have it I just started to look at external hard drives yesterday and did not buy one yet.) but a full fix would be nice too.
