Now, whenever I try to start up windows, it gets stuck on the windows XP loading screen while the little blue bar just keeps moving.
I've tried booting up in safe mode, and it loads to agp440.sys and freezes.
I've tried the windows recovery console with chkdsk /r and that doesn't help, and I've tried repairing windows with the windows CD, and that hasn't done anything to help the situation either.
I really can't afford to reinstall windows fresh though because I had moved some really important documents onto the hard drive and I'd like to recover them before I reinstall windows again.
Does anyone know if I could use knoppix, and transfer the files onto my iPod? I thought of that but for some reason knoppix doesn't recoginize the drives as a recognizable format. Any idea of how i can at least get into safe mode and recover some files before another reformat?
