If you run a repair with the recovery disc you won't lose any info. The only time you'll lose the info is if you run a complete reload. Run the system disc until it gets to the point of finding installed operating systems, at this point instead of deleting the partition, press R and it will reinstall the operating system files only leaving other installed files and programs intact. Keep in mind that many times when this happens, it's a hard drive failure. If it is a hard drive failure, then you will have to replace the hard drive and you will lose the info, sorry.

Try going to system tools, and select system restore .. If that does not work ,May be virus, may have full restore with formating the hard drive

Try this, get a boot able CD copy of RIPLINUX 6.2 nonX. Go into your Compact bios and select CDROM as the first boot device. Open cd dvd player and install 6.2 Power down and then power up to 6.2 Install GRUB and select HARD DRIVE Partition #2 from the menu and wait.
Now here is what will happen. GRUB will load and execute drive partition #2 which contains the original factory install for your Compact V5000T. Warning!!!! You will lose any customized programs that where added after you bought your computer (goes back to factory default operating system) by reformatting #1 partition. There are utilities that can retrive the contents of a formatted partition, but this is beyond the limits of this topic. Use Google to search for those utilities. They are sometimes free.
