My stupid company laptop OS (XP Pro) was crashed yesterday.
A sudden power shortage now it is crashed!
Now when I boot up from the laptop, It prompt me for safe mode selections , last known hardware changes or normal bootup.
Select any of it, will continue to boot normally (With XP logo running) and appear 1/2 second blue screen which I can not even see whats the error message is about.


Now, my problem would be how can I backup my C:\document & Setting folder. I can put the internal drive to a USD mobile disk to retrieve the data, but I was not able to access the folder with error message access denied.

I need to bakcup my personal files in my documents & my IE address book. If I attempt to reinstall, document & setting folder will be removed. KNN ! :angry:

Anyone experience this and have way to solve thing around? ;) <_< :(

Always kena this one.. the blue screen appear for only a second right..
if your read carefully (fast enough) you'll see it said something about memory dump bla bla bla...

what I normally do is just to reinstall the OS and it will work again without losing your current files. No backup needed. Inseet your XP CD and boot it from your CD-rom and select xp installation..REPAIR. It will install XP again on top of your current OS without deleting your current files...
Select carefully, one mistake and everything is gone.

No, the msseage appear too fast to be readable! Stupid microsoft!

no, I select that features, Repair, it prompt me for login, go direct to command prompt C:\windows only .. not reinstall without modify data.

If I attempt to reinstall on top of the sam drive location, documents & setting folder will automatic delete.. hmm..

I will try to plug into my usd drive again and use another laptop to cross check the folder again .....sob sob sob!

As part of reinstallation so call security feeature, all existing profile will be delte, which means, the C:\Document & Setting folder that contain my document, IE address book n etc will all gone!

I hv some personal data ni there thus I am reluctant to use that way to rebuild my machine!

You can still install on top and it wont delete your files. Trust me..I kena many times already...
when loading xp and it suddenly flash to that blue screen with a lot of word and reboot within a second..after many times I manage to eread that t said something about memory dump like that.

You can use the CD and do a new installation on top of the current OS without deleting your files. Haiyooooo... this is easy to recover. Not much people know that xp can do new installation on top without deleting the files. I try it and it works..not for once but many many times..

Once more. YOU CAN DO NEW INSTALLATION ON TOP OF CURRENT XP without losing your files. TOTALLY SECURED. Geramnya.
