All of a sudden the other day my computer restarted itself and now does not load into windows. It is always going into the "Safe Mode Options Screen". I've tried every option (safe mode; safe mode with networking; last known config; and start windows normally) Each one does not work and just goes back to the same screen. I've already tried the sticky posted at the beginning of this forum but when I choose option one after insterting the XP disc it only gives me the option to install windows xp again. It does not give me an option "Repair" windows. So I tried going into the recovery console. Once I am in there, when i type in "dir" it says it is unable to find it or I think it says "Invalid Drive Specification". Now when i run "chkdsk" or "chkdsk /r" it runs up until the 25% mark and says that the volume is corrupt or something is wrong with it. Does anyone know how to fix this or what I can do to back up my files...??
