I think my computer caught something really bad. To start, first the computer totally froze. I couldn't get it to do anything. So first thought I had was hit the power button. First I'm running Windows xp. When I tried to reboot I got a flash of blue screen the "welcome" screen then It went to a black screen the one with "safe mode, safe mode with network ect." Itried all of the options on the screen. All It would do was constant reboot cycle.
I took it to the shop and the tech couldn't get it to start either. I asked him just to put a new hard drive in and load Windows xp (I don't have access to a disk). I did this because I want to retrieve some of the stuff on the old hard drive. It has several pictures and documents that I really need to save. The tech was going to try to slave the old hard drive into the computer but every time he accesses it it crashes the computer. Is there anyway I can get the stuff I need off of the old hard drive.
Thank you very much,
If anyone knows what was wrong with the old hard drive would someone let me know.
