My desktop computer had started acting strange, taking longer to boot, and hanging now and then while I was using it.
Now tonight I went to reboot, after a hang, and the cursor is kind of flashing in the upper left-hand corner, and it's not getting to the point where it loads XP. I've shut down the power, turned it back on, and same problem.
Now, I'll admit up front that I've been stupid because my most recent backup is about six months old. So, any ideas on 1) the problem and 2) if there's a way I can salvage some or all of the stuff on the drive? thanks
