I think a computer I built about 7mo ago, somehow has a corrupted OS(Windows XP Home).... Computer turns on, checked BIOS, all hardware seems to be fine. Then I get the Windows XP Home loading screen, then the mouse cursor comes up, and the screen goes black, and the computer ceases to continue booting. I tried starting in safe mode, same thing. Unfortunately, this girl keeps terrible back ups(ie, none), so I'm assuming I'm gonna have to do a clean install. I'm curious though, if I pull that hard drive, bring it over to my house, and slave it to my Hard drive, I should able to back up critical files, presuming the drive is good, correct? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.. IGF Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
