Hopefully someone can help soon, by the way it's not my computer it's my mom's laptop, she apparently let someone install windows 8 and it some how corrupted system 32, I've never had to deal with this cause I never made a mistake like this.

I do not have a Windows XP boot cd, or any boot cd, just my computer.

Windows 8?

That's not even an authorized MS Windows beta...let alone something fit for install, IMO...I suspect that a clean install of the legitimate version of Windows will be necessary.

Thanks louis, but at the moment that is my moms last resort, she has a bunch of important work files on there, and basically all I need to know is how to backup the files before a fresh install, is there any way I can do this?

As stated...remove the hard drive from her system, attach it to your system...move the data files from one to the other.

You can attach directly to motherboard or use some sort of USB-connected device/caddy for this.
