I got a laptop and stopped using my desktop pc. When i came to use it one day the Dell Screen would boot and then it would go blank. I pressed F8 and then selected safe mode then I got a list of html starting with:
and this is followed with more html

I thought I had all of my son's baby pictures saved to a cd but the cd only has other files that mean nothing to me. I need to save the baby pictures!!! Any help would be awesome!

I have found one of the best way to get info off of a windows computer that won't boot, is with a Linux live cd. Mount the
windows hard drive, insert flash drive, transfer pictures or whatever
to your flash drive.

Awesome! I found an article explaining a bit further at this site: in case anyone else needs similar help. I think I can actually do this. Now I am off to get a flash drive so I can give it a go! Thanks
