Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an exmachines T2085. It is almost 6 years-old and I've had little problems with it. It has been processing slower and slower over the last year and a half. I was preparing to back up my personal data and ditch it, but before I did, XP stopped booting on my machine. I have not downloaded any new software lately. When the machine powers up, i get a screen that ofers me the option of starting in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuation, or Start Normally. I have tried all of them and none work. When trying the safe Mode options the scree fills up with various paths to files. When trying to start normally or with the last known good configuation, the computer starts to boot up XP as usual, but then it flashes a blue screen with white text (too fast to read) and goes back to the screen with all of the start options.
My goal is to retrieve my personal data. Is there anything can do to get XP to boot up so I can try to retrieve my data (although as slow as my computer is it will take me hours to do those simple file saves). Or is this a situation where I will need to take my computer to a professinal to retrieve my data?
In safe mode, u just wait for some minutes, b'coz in safe mode, it load the necessary files. check it by waiting for few minutes. if not working then insert a win98se cd or dos cd so that u can acess the drivers. then copy that data.
