So I messed with this for a few hours last night. Basically it goes into a loop as it won't boot into 'normal' windows or safe mode. I can't even do an 'F10' System Restore. I am going to try to reinstall windows. Unfortunately, my HP didn't come with a copy of the Win XP disc. My friend has an unused Vista disc that he doesn't want, so I will use that.
I can't tell if it is a virus or not. It is most likely some software issue. However, I can't get far enough to try to even do anything about it.
If I decide to ditch the computer all together, can I still get the files off the hard drive?
