Ok guys I need help bigtime.......I've spent most of today running around in circles! Mt daughters pc is down. It wont boot at all, just gets to the windows screen with the bullets going left to right, and goes straight to bsod. I've tried running chkdsk from the xp cd, but as soon as I choose repair, and hit enter.......straight to bsod. It wont even run maxtors hd utility!!........nothing seems to work at all. Shes got pics and stuff she doesnt want to lose......short of plugging her hd into my pc and copying them to cd (assuming I will be able to see them) I've run out of ideas.......any help please.......pleeeeeeaase !
