My sony laptop with windows xp home media center keeps rebooting

\015 The system keeps rebooting and i try everything like safe mode and last configuration that worked.\015\012HELP i cant find my recovery discs.. Will i lose my data?\015

Answers :

When XP gets into the rebooting mode, you will have to run a chkdsk or do an XP repair. You will not lose your data. But you do need your recovery cd or a WinXP cd.
\015\012Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type chkdsk C: /R at the prompt in the recovery console.
\015\012XP repair
\015\012When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
\015\012Lastly, your drive can be taken out of the unit and set into an enclosure or adapter. The data can be saved, the your hard drive can be formatted and programs and data reinstalled.
\015\012Good Luck,
\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
\015\012Thanks, Joe
