Re: format from normal CD and lose all Recovery thinks
The ideal thing to do would be to use a factory recovery cd that came with your laptop if you purchased it new. If you do not have the necessary cd you could call the maker of your laptop & request one. There would probably be a fee for this. You could also just pick up a copy of your favorite operating system at a store & install it. Hope this helps.

Yes you will. There is a way to recover your photos first before formatting, but it will require the use of software and a card reader. There is plenty of freeware software to do this, and card readers are relatively inexpensive these day. Please see the following:
After you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again.
When XP gets into the rebooting mode, you will have to run a chkdsk or do an XP repair. You will not lose your data. But you do need your recovery cd or a WinXP cd.
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type chkdsk C: /R at the prompt in the recovery console.
XP repair When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software. Lastly, your drive can be taken out of the unit and set into an enclosure or adapter. The data can be saved, the your hard drive can be formatted and programs and data reinstalled. Good Luck, If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
You can just get a new windows XP CD then on that you will have an option to repair what ever your problem with the operating system, if your hard disk has a partition and you don't have any data from the C drive where your OS is installed you can format the C drive and your files are still on your D drive.
Sounds to me like file corruption (possibly from improper shutdown, or power failure). If so you can try a repair install (this is an option found before the format screen on XP SP2 Disks. I'm not sure about pre SP2 though) from your original Windoze installation CD (I do think it has to be SP2 though). The repair install will replace system files like .dlls and not lose data that you may require that is on your hard drive currently. If data recovery is not an issue, then you can preform a clean install. Good luck.
