    I need to know what happens when the computer starts - does it go through its regular start up procedures (POST) or does it just stay blank.At what point when loading windows does it quit? What version of WIndows are you using? Is there an error message? Can you boot into Safe Mode?

I think you will have to try to install a fresh copy of windows i suppose you are using Windows Xp, try repairing it but dont press "r" when it tells you that there is windows loaded, press"r" on the second time, this might repair your os, but see that in any case u dont allow the computer to get formatted. if it tells you that the hard disk is corrupted and u need to format it dont format it cause u say that there is important data inside, so remove the hard disk from the computer and connect it to one of your friends computer take out your data and then format the hard disk and reload the software once again

My computer gives message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". I don't have a reboot disk.

That probably means the boot manager is missing or has an error. If the hdd is available in your bios, press F8 just before it would normally boot. There should be a menu that will allow you to repair windows.

Windows is totally corrupted and you must reinstall it. So either select the recovery partition from the boot menu or put in the recovery cd and select it and follow the instructions.

How do i fix an unexpectedI/o error

Could be when windows uses transfer mode, you can change this mode
Steps To Change IDE Properties
Click the Start button
Right click My Computer
Select Manage from the resulting menu
In the Computer Management window, select Device Manager
In the right pane, click to expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
Identify your CD/DVD drive in the expanded menu and right click the appropriate drive
Select Properties
In the Properties windows, click the Advanced Settings tab
In the Transfer Mode box that represents your CD/DVD drive (typically Device 1); open the dropdown menu and select PIO Only
Click ok and exit all windows
If this does not resolve your issue, then you will need to go back using the above procedure and change the Device 1 in step #9 back to "DMA if available". Then, change Device 0 to "PIO Only" in the Transfer Mode box.
For reference, the Device 0 is the Primary IDE Channel and the Device 1 is the secondary IDE Channel.
After you change your settings, make sure you restart your system so that the computer recognizes the changes you have made. After you reboot, check the settings to make sure they are in effect. If they are, your device should now work properly.

any further help let me know

Compressed boot manager

Windows Vista includes a new Boot Manager (BootMgr) that replaces the old NT Loader (Ntldr).

If the boot partition no longer can be found, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is missing. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

The Windows Boot Configuration Data file is missing required information

More Info MS KB 919529
More Info MS KB 927391

This can usually be solved by checking the boot devices, and if no problems found then use Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair".

If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error: BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
This can usually be solved by using Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a "Startup Repair". If that fails then use WinRE to enter the "Command Prompt" and execute these commands:
  • compact /U C:\bootmgr
  • compact /U C:\ntldr
