Question about PC Laptops
Doing nothing out of the ordinary, not having any new programs downloaded, suddenly my computer froze and I decided to restart it by holding the power switch. From there after rebooting it, I cant get pass the 'Windows' loading screen when the computer first starts up. I get the same outcome when running on last known good what ever. Running it in safe mode, it jumps to Windows is now loading... and hangs there, and if I click the mouse enough it freezes.
Reformat seems like the best idea, but I have a lot of files I cant afford to lose. Is there a way for me to grab those files off my hard drive and stick up in a external one?
Is it a lappy or desktop? if its a desktop, you can make your drive a slave in order to recover those files that you want. same goes if its a lappy. however, it would give you a hard time becasue you have to take out the HD fro the lappy unlike the Desktop cpu.
seems like your froze to a point it cant pass over the startup windows loading. it may be that some window files were tampered by an illegal operation by some of your programs.
reformat will do the trick. recover your files by using another cpu of a friend and after that, reformat that drive.
