Ok, I'm in big trouble. My laptop crashed a couple of weeks ago, and it's dead, dead, dead. I have talked to a few people about it, and it is the general consensus that my c drive is no more. Mostly, when I try to start it, it says "Operating system not found." I have been able to get into a DOS view, and it does not even acknowledge that I have a C drive. I have poked around a bit in the BIOS, and for a bit, I was able to get the windows screen to pop up momentarily, but the blue screen of death pops up and it eventually decides that the OS is, in fact, not found. My question is this: Is it possible to find some manner of XP boot software that will just try to boot the computer up without losing my data. I have a ton of pictures and files for work that I did not back up. I just need to see if there is a way to get to those files and move them somewhere else. I am on a wireless network (or was, when the computer was working), and could transfer that way or through a jump drive or a memory stick or cd...anything - if I could just get to the files. Any suggestions?
