Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I was reinstalling windows xp sp3 and suddenly the lights went off and back again. when i switched on the computer it did not continue with the installation but rather always kept on rebooting. when booting, i clicked on any key to boot from cd, but after booting it gave me this blue warning screen with error numbers. Please help becoz i dont want to lose my data. THANKS IN ADVANCE.


Answers :

If your reinstalling the SP3 from scratch. The best way is to reformat again the hard drive from scratch. Use partitioning software or the DOS based command.

That might be a data corruption with the lights go out. When chain of links and command during installation is broken.
Could be a physical fault with either the hard disk or a damaged XP installation cd. I would disconnect the hard drive and connect it to another pc via an ide/sata to usb converter to see if you can read the disk and save your data. These converters can be purchased for under a tenner on ebay.

My Toshiba Satellite m35-s320 powers off in the middle of doing something, without warning and before actually shutting down, I get a brief glimpse of a blue screen. It's so brief, in fact, that I don't even get a chance to read what it says. This happens randomly, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, sometimes not at all in a single day. It's very frustrating especially if something important is being worked on. Please help! What's going on? Thank you kindly to all who respond.
