Specs: windows xp home version, donlt know what that means
in selective diagnostic mode scrolling up and down in a ny program was jiggly....nothing would stay still enough to click on. Managed to restart in selective mode-same thing. Clicked on diagnostic mode instead but I noticed that before I clicked restart it changed itself back to selective startup...so I clicked each selection category to see what was selected to run in the selective startup mode and everything was disabled...same in the boot, win ini, etc. I then clicked normal start up and clicked each category and same thing, every item disabled. Switched back to selectiive startup and enabled EVERYTHING and clicked restart...compaq logo appeared then a list of "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers\...." i canlt remember the rest. When the list was done, that was it...no options not even a way to restart or close. So I turned off the computer and powered back on clicked F8. Tried safe mode, last good ...,etc...same list appeared. Next I started computer clicked F10 and Compaq Computer Setup utility sreen came up with columns/categories of choices appeared...now what...what do I do now?

Are you using an older style CRT (tube type) monitor?

If you have one, try a different mouse.

the monitor is a Campaq FP745A... I did happen to change the batteries in the mouse right before my computor went "haywire"...so now I am at the CCCSetup Utility with coices of categories suchas: File, Storage, Security,Power, and Advanced... What do I do at this point? Thank you for your time with this matter...

:You may be able to recover your personal files without fixing the OS. There are many live versions of Linux that can run from a CDR or even a flash drive. You may be able to use one of them to copy your files to another location. Then you can try fixing your laptop.

Linux puppy is one version that should do what you need. You will need a location to copy the files.

It isn't clear to me if the laptop display is usable or not. If it isn't, then your other choice is to remove the hard drive and access it using another computer.
