Computer stuck in Dos Mode

September 20, 2010 at 06:41:54
Specs: Windows XP
I tried to back up my computer using Ghost 2003 (silly me as I didn't really understand it). My computer is now stuck in PC DOS 7.1 Startup Menu. It gives me an option to

1. Run Norton Ghost Dos Operation
2. Return to Windows without running norton ghost

Only problem is it won't let me choose option 2. I have turned the computer off and on several times always goes back to the DOS screen

Please help, I am desperate and getting very concerned I will loose my stuff. I don't have any of the set up disks as it is a second hand computer. I am running XP

Thanks

So how did you get into Ghost DOS mode?

Did you boot from floppy?

I had Ghost on my computer, followed instructions to backup and was going to back up to my external drive. It came up with a message saying that the computer would re start in DOS mode to begin the back up. that is when my problems started. when it restarted DOS mode came up and is now frozen. Doesn't matter how many times I turn on and off can't do anything.
