Specs: Windows XP
HI. I downloaded a free trial version of microsoft office and didn't activate it as it took so long to download. I turned off my computer and the next day when i boot it up it does the usual beeps then stops on the black screen saying IDE-0. I tried putting in windows disk and using R to repair but it didn't work. Please help as i have all my family pictures on my comp as well as other bits and pieces that i really do not want to lose. I never learnt how to do a backup :-(
I am not a computer 'geek' but do know a little something about computers. So please try and keep it simple if you have any suggestions.
Many thanks
Donna x

Did you turn off the computer while the download was in process, or did you close all programs and shut down properly? What is the "Exact" error message? What manufacturer/model of computer do you have?

You say you have XP, yet you posted in the Windows ME Forum. What OS do you have?
