This morning before work I turned on the laptop in Repair mode. After
several hours when I returned; a Blue screen has appeared stating the

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart
you computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed
(I can't do this as I can't get on to windows :\). If this is a new
installation; as your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows
updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or
software (Again I can't do as I can't get on). Disable BIOS memory
options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to
remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select
Advanced startup options, and then select Safe Mode. (Safe Mode will not
load windows either; it just keeps going but never loads it; same as
when I try to start it normally).

Techical information:

*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE39C47D8, 0x00000000, 0x87DFA0F2, 0x00000002)

Please help me D= I don't want to loose everything on my laptop.

Try doing a repair installation. This will not effect your data.

Boot the computer from the XP CD. You may need to change boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.

When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below

This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.
You do not want to choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R.

Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair isn't one of the option end the installation, this will mean that you will need to do a fresh installation of XP.

The repair will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot, the repair installation will continue after the reboot.
