My old computers operating system is Windows ME. Starting my computer I receive the message "While Initializing device CONFIGMG: Windows Protection Error. You need to restart your computer." After doing some research it seems I need to perform a BIOS upgrade. Guaranteed this is basically Spanish to me, I followed the directions on the Microsoft website [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/187612]
under more information. It said to "Force APM 1.0" On my computer, it didn't have the option to do that.
The computer will only run in Safe Mode. My question is, besides how to fix this problem, I have important files on the computer that I would hate to see deleted, how do I retrieve these files? Thanks in advance for your help.
