ok, first time here so I'll just describe my problem. Was using Microsoft word and computer restarted, won't load up again. The bar stops at the Windows XP loading screen, won't let me into any safe mode or into the previous settings option. I have tried to reboot windows XP from the startup disk, but I always get to the format option and never get the option to repair. I don't know what else to do and I've been looking on the web for a day now.... if anyone has any good options where I can KEEP all my information (absolutely need to) than I need information urgently. Sorry for the inconvenience and if you need any more information, I'll be gald to help.
