I have a Dell Inspiron 1000, it runs windows XP. I was using it the other day and mozilla firefox ran a update, once the update was finished a box popped up saying that it was shutting down firefox and would reopen it. I clicked ‘Ok’ and it never reopened. I tried clicking on the icon but nothing happened, so i held my start button down to turn off my laptop. I then hit the start button again to turn it on and it starts to boot up gets to the windows xp loading screen and stops and wont go any further. Does anyone know how to fix this????
Also none of my files are backed-up, and i dont want to lose them, currently I am able to boot my computer up by using a linspire disk and running off the disk, and i can see all of my files but i can not transfer them to a USB drive or a external hard drive because my computer is not recognizing them, any ideas on how to fix that?
The only problem with using linspire to transfer data to a flash drive is the fact that the flash drive isnt recognized by my computer.
