I have an older XP machine, that although it is gray in the beard, I don't want to lose.
Recently, when a PDF file stopped working, and I hard to do a hard reboot, it never came back.
The error along with the blue screen of death is in the subject line.
I do have files/folders on the machine that I'd prefer not to lose, but I backed up a few months ago, so if I lose, and keep the machine that would be option 2.
I am not a computer wiz, but am willing to experiment.
I do not have the XP disc, nor did I back up when I initially purchased the device.
What is the approach without the disc? Does it make sense to try and find another one to reload the software?
