Specs: Windows XP , Intel pentium 4/ 256MB
I have a Toshiba Satellite A20 laptop that's been giving me problems loading the windows Xp Everytime I try to start the computer it goes straight to the following screen after showing the windows logo for few seconds.
A poblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer........
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or back up facilities. check your hard drive configuration and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer
Technical information
STOP: 0X000000024 (0X001901FF, 0X80F252F8, 0X0000102, 0X0000000)

I refer this problem for your technical help and I was advised to re install windows and if I would like to recover the data i have to use linux live cd. Now I have borrowed a ubuntu live cd version 5.04 for intel x86 from someone and tried to boot from the cd. I could load the OS sucessfully. However I cannot detect any of my files from the windows.I accessed through places then computer to see what drives are available. Only the CDRom and files system are available there none of which have any access to windows files. should I give up on recovering this data and reinstall? It would be a great help if I can recover the data because some of them cannot be recovered from elsewhere. Please help me. I am about to reformat now giving all other hopes.

Could possibly fix but you'd have to know more about what is damaged.

The xp disk can repair as well as you should have a barts PE disk too with advanced tools installed.

It is possible that the disk you used didn't have the drivers for your sata or raid array. We'd need to know more about that too.

In linux use the terminal command line mount to see more about what is mounted. Most live cd's mount the local disks if they can. See the gui or directory media. It may have your drive mounted there.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
