I am running a computer with Windows XP. I only use it on the weekends and when I left last weekend it was working fine, I got back today and turned it on. It got past 2 loading screens then BAM it hit the "start windows in safe mode, start windows from last configuration, start windows normally screen" naturally I hit start it normally but after a few seconds it just reset it and came back to the same screen. I tried all the options numerous times and nothing works--It just resets and I get sent back to that screen. I would appreciate any sort of help, I cannot afford to get a new computer right now and I would also love the stuff off my hard drive if it did crash. Thank you so much!
