|Ok, so here's my problem,|
I turn on my computer and after giving you the option of editing your networking options, (I won't go into details on these because these seem normal, and thus not pertinent to my problem), I get to a screen that says windows was not shut down tidely and gives me the following options:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Start with last know working Config
Start Windows Normally
The problem is, no matter which option I choose, it doesn't actually start up windows.
If I choose any of the Safe Mode options it starts going down listing a lot of system 32 info until it finally stops and freezes on:
If I choose use last know good config it advances to the screen that's entirely black except for the grey progress bar at the bottom. The gray bar fills up, but then instead of going to the Windows XP welcome screen with the blue loading bar it just freezes on the screen with a full grey bar.
And finally, if I choose Start Windows Normally, the grey bar appears at the bottom but the selection screen remains up above it. Once again, when the grey bar is filled it just freezes on that screen and doesn't advance at all.
I am hoping that there is a way to solve this problem without having to wipe my HD. I have many important files on it and never had the chance to back them up (I know, stupid me).
