Safe Mode? It'll look funny Big Icons & Few Colors which revert in normal mode BUT it loads only minimum drivers etc so may by pass the problem long enough to off load. This assumes you know for sure it's
NOT an infection matter (where in offloading my send problems with it).
From safe mode you can also access "Event Viewer" which will show errors that might be source of problem. In viewer, highlight error item and select "properties" to see a short description of the error cause.
Hope this helps.
I have an emachine T-4160 running windows XP Professional. I need to move files from this dinosaur to a new computer running Vista Ultimate. I can power up the computer (green light) and windows powers up (orange light) but shuts off before i can access anything to download or transfer. However, the green power light remains on.
Any ideas to keep windows XP running?
