Hello AustrAlien, I have a similar problem. The monitor turns off (Entering power saving mode) during boot at the Win xp logo.
Safe mode stops at MUP.sys.
This PC does not have a CD drive.
Can puppy linux be used through a bootable USB disk? If yes, how

You can use Ubuntu to recover your data.


How to use Ubuntu to recover data from a hard drive.

Please download Ubuntu, you will need to burn this to a CD in order to make a bootable disc.  To do this please download ImgBurn.

When you open ImgBurn you will see a page like the one below.


Click on Write image file to disc outlined in red.

The next page to open will be like the one below.


Click on the icon of the folder and magnifing glass outlined in red to the right of Source to locate the Ubuntu ISO file.  Place a CD in the optic drive and click Burn.

In order to boot from this disc you may need to enter the BIOS and make your CD/DVD-ROM the first device in the boot order

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
