Inspiron 6000 problem?

My wife’s Dell Inspiron 6000 has ceased to start, coming up with a blue screen and a message saying unmountable boot volume. I know the HDD is fine. It’s XP that has screwed itself up.

How do I get the data off it? I have tried various Linux live CDs but none seems to allow me to access the data on the HDD and transfer it to networked storage.

Also, how do I initialise the on disk reformat/reinstall partition? I know there’s one there as it shows up as a 35gb hard drive and it’s actually a 40gb.
It’s an elderly Dell. I found the drive (a hitachi travelstar) is dated 2005. I know my wife has had the laptop for a couple of years and that it’s out of warranty. I’ve fixed several blue-screen errors before but this time it’ll show the XP progress bar but then comes up with a blue screen with the unmountable boot volume error.

How do I get my internet to work with linux (ubuntu)?

So I have the newest version of Ubuntu and I run it from a live cd. My internet is fine when I run Windows but for some reason, it won’t work on Linux. When I try to open administration settings and things like that, it says I’m not authorized to do that. I was told that if I got a router (right now I’m connecting from my PC to the wall) the internet would work just fine. However, I just found that all of my routers are being used and I’m too lazy to buy a new one at the moment. So how can i get the internet to work without getting a router?

linux live cd boot problem?

my linux live cd’s work completelly fine, but when i turn the computor off , turn it back on , then quickly take out the cd so windows, instead of linux , boots , it commes to this black screen that sais something like “windows has required a problem booting , what should it do?”

i press last working configuration and it boots windows…. but as it boots it starts this annoying whirring sound

i restarted the pc, hoping to god that i didnt kill my moms pc, like the day before

($150 down the drain)

and it booted normally

this really scared me because the whole thing was exactly what happend when the pc crached a few days before

i think it crashed a few days ago from the fact that i installed linux (ubuntu fiesty) via wubi on the hard drive… i thought the live cd didnt interact with the hard drive

please help…tell me if i should stop using live cd’s , why , and , if possible, and tell me an alternate way to boot linux wothout in any way interactingwiththe drive
