Unable to back-up windows XP

We just bought a netbook Advent 4211c. The instructions state that you should back-up windows xp before you use the computer as there is no disc drive. We have tried both a USB stick and an SD card but it kept telling us there was an error. Have you heard of this before?

    I also have the same problem. The manual states it should work so surely some knowledgable person knows how to solve this using a USB as the accompanying manual stipulates.

My friend has a advent 4211-b netbook was working fine until it would not let him load xp or reboot in any mode it just looks as if going to load then goes straight back to load windows normaly


Try to start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

I have an Advent 4211 Netbook. When I switch on windows XP will not start, just takes me to the screen which offers Safe Mode, normally etc - but whichever I try it just comes back to this screen


XP is corrupted, most likely caused by a massive infection. Try a Repair. Follow this instructions http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm 
If this doesn't work (or goes back they way it is now very quickly) use a Linux Live-CD to backup all your files and reformat your pc and do a clean install.

Havent got a backup of windows


Unfortunately that isn't legally possible. You will need to contact your PC manufacturer or buy a new copy of Windows.

Can't get on windows xp?


Hi,
Have you tried running it in safe mode, then you can restore it to a later date. Or if you have a XP cd, run a repair on windows.

Good Luck
