I've seen many solutions suggested involving making a windows repair CD on another computer but the problem is, my CD/DVD drive doesnt read any disks for some reason (I actually sought help through this site over a year ago and no I havent gotten around to replacing the drive. I know I know....)
So..... If my computer and / or my hard drive is just screwed and I should just buy a new one, please tell me there is a way to recover my files and photos.
No I have no backup either.
I had an external hd that was my backup and that died and I lost everything, cds eventually go bad and I can't afford to pay for cloud storage so......as far as I'm concerned there is no true backup.....wah wah wahh
Anyhoo, would copying those repair cds onto a usb stick an option? Is there a way to set that up in bios?
I haven't used the computer in months because I can't get it to boot and I don't recall for sure but I think I'm using windows vista ultimate, 64? Not sure if or what service pack ..its a gateway laptop t series. It was purchased second hand from someone.
Thanks for any help if you can.
