windows XP keeps rebooting to the screen to start in safe mode, networking, command prompt, last known and normal mode. Doesn't matter which I choose it shows the XP screen for about 1 sec and then reboots to the same screen.
This is on my friends computer and she keeps the church books on it so we don't want to loose her info (she hasn't backed up in a while)

Thank you

Hello Wildbull and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
