Ok, I tried to install a Linksys USB wireless adapter on my computer. It is a Gateway Performance Mini Tower and was upgraded to Windows XP a while back from 98. I have not had ANY problems until now. Anyway, I started to run the CD and our power went out. I turned the computer back on and it goes through the Gateway splash screens, the black Windows XP screen, and starts the Blue Windows XP logo page and freezes. I have tried to hold down F8 to access the Boot menu but nothing happens. On the Gateway splash screen it says "press F1 to change start up options" when I go through there, there aren't any safe mode options. I am trying to attempt to recover a quicken file should I take out the Hard Drive and put in in my other system or keep trying to get into this one?
