I was playing Diablo II after school and my brother was vacuuming. And for some reason our breakers went out and the power to my room and his went out. He fixed it and i started my computer back up fine. He started vacuuming again. This time I was trying to Do my Term Paper and then the Breaker went out again. Thankfully I had saved a minute or two before that happened.. So I thought this would be just like the last time. I turned on my comp and it started loading up. Until that is it got to the Windows XP logo with the blue scrolling bar below it.Just after a few seconds a blue screen with that information popped up. The first time i couldnt reed it so I disabled automatic retart when Error occurs or someting like that. So it restarted again and then that message came up. I've tried everything. My brother got it to work for a short time but then My computer over heated and turned off without saving and the same problem happened again. And I tried to do what the error message says about logging on with Safe Mode but It wont even get pasted loading safe mode. The nI tried to Use the Windows XP disk to fix it and it gave me a slightly different screen but it still wouldnt work. Could anyone please help me. My grade depends on that Term Paper. And I have important information on it that I cant afford to lose.. Thank you for anyone that reads or replys.
