Question about Computers & Internet
I'm going to assume several things. One, that you are using a windows system (as most people do)and secondly that we're talking about the legendary "blue screen of death" here. If this is being displayed on bootup, then there is a serious problem, and you usually have very few choices. I would recommend putting your windows disc in the drive, booting from the disc, and attempting to use the repair console to fix whatever the problem is. If this fails, you will probably have to do a fresh install of windows. You will use the windows disc, and when it asks what you want to do, you will select a clean install of the windows operating system.
If you have not backed up all of your files, this presents a dilema. You can either go with a fresh install, and hope that windows will not overwrite anything stored in your documents (sometimes it will, sometimes it won't, it just depends on what the problem was which caused the blue screen to begin with.) If you haven't backed anything up, then your best bet is to have a brief sojourn into the world of Linux live.
Download and burn a copy of linux (the latest version of Ubuntu is wonderful). Put the cd in your drive, and when your system boots, it will ask whether you want to install linux, or just run it from the disc. Run it from the disc (this will take a little while) and once in linux, you will be able to browse the hard drive. Take this time to back up all of your essential files, either to an external drive, or by burning them onto disc. Once your files are backed up, repair or reinstall windows, and you should be back on track.
