Go to  http://pclinuxos.com  and download the iso for their Linux Live-Cd. Burn that iso to a disk, boot from it and copy all your data.
Once you have done that you can either install that Linux or reinstall Windows using a generic install disk you can find on the internet and your key. You could try to Repair your OS but since the registry is corrupted it's not worth the effort - it would take longer and it would be less reliable than a simple clean install.

I start my GT5408, get SAFE MODE option screen.. any option i choose pc restarts and thus same cycle over and over and over..... please help


This is the sign that critical files needed to launch Windows are missing. Since you have no idea what caused it finding the missing files will be almost impossible so it will be better (and much faster and easier) to just reinstall Windows using the recovery disk.

Try 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.

Tsst-h652d not working after upgrade, thinks its a cdrom not combo


Well, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. It was still worth a try. I have to agree with you. Since it isn't being recognized properly it probably isn't worth the trouble getting it repaired since typically that costs more than buying a new one. If you need to find some good prices on CD/DVD readers & burners you can look online here:

Newegg

Simply navigate to Computer Hardware > CD / DVD Burners & Media. After the page loads simply click, "CD / DVD Burners" located in the menu on the left.

Let me know if I can do anything else for you (posted as a solution so you could rate the responses above).
