Then it's time to buy a nice new laptop with Windows 8.1 Update 1. Install Classic Shell and enjoy.
Repair is too expensive to even think of.
Let's hope you have a good backup of all your data. If not, buy an enclosure to turn the hard disk of this XP laptop into an external drive to copy your data from.
A couple of days ago I turned on my Emachines laptop which runs XP and it goes to a screen that gives me the option of recovery manager but when I choose that it goes to the blue screen of death. When I try to load it in safe mode it does it's normal thing and shows a bunch of files but then gives me the option of recovery manager and once again, if I choose that I get the blue screen.(Window shut down to prevent damage) When I insert the windows cd and try to go to repair it gives the blue screen. So I gave up and tried to re format but the only option I am given is recovery manager which does not work. So I got a copy of windows 7 and inserted that, it actually gives me the option to re install windows but when I select that option, it says loading files and does not go beyond that point. After 2 hours it still says loading. Any help would be appreciated.
