I cannot log in when in safe mode.
It never reaches the login, just stays at the black screen with "safe mode" at each corner. I can see the mouse, but I can't open task manager or anything

Booted in last known config again, and it said it successfully restored the corrupted registry.
But, the computer stays at "windows is startig up"...

I have a LOT of work on my computer. Will using the recovery console delete any of my work?

CHKDSK finally finished:

"75% Done.
The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems."
-Is my computer fixable?
-If not, how do I recover my data?

If chkdsk is reporting that the drive contains unrecoverable problems and you can still log in to Windows, then you need to backup all of your critical data immediately. Like right now. Copy your data to CDs, flash drives, floppy disks, whatever but do it now. It is likely that the hard drive is nearing catastrophic failure in which event your data would be lost forever or extremely expensive to recover.

-My computer will not boot at all. It gets stuck at "Windows is starting up". I can only access the recovery console. Is it possible to use COPY in the recovery console to back up the data I need?
-Is my computer fixable?

No, the Recovery Console is limited to accessing files within the Windows directory (and a few other individual files as well.) You could, however, try using a Linux LiveCD to boot the computer and try to copy the files that way. It's not as hard or complex as it sounds! Here's a good How-To on doing it.

Would I be able to use Bart's PE to recover my files?
