So my hp xp computer just won't load passed the windows flag screen. It continually restarts to the screen where it says start in safe mode, last known config etc. The computer just restarts whatever option you pick. I have no installation xp disc.
Having googled the problem it seems to be quite a common problem, albeit with no easy fix.
Unfortunately there are a few files that I would like to retrieve if possible.
I tried to use Linux puppy but had no success as a) the files on linux were all just a load of numbers so i didn't know what the files were i wanted and b when I plugged in an external hard drive nothing happened.
How would I go about retrieving files
- is there a way to transfer them to a laptop?
- any other program's like Linux that could help?
- or is there a way to fix the computer?
Hope someone will be able to help.
Thank you in advance for any assistance.
