Hi. My sisters Compaq laptop is running windows XP. I was trying to put Ofice XP on it, but I was having some problems, and had to restart the computer. Now when I turn it on it goes to the first Windows start up screen as it is loading, flashes a blue error screen for a few seconds, then askes me if I want to start in normal mode, or safe mode. They both won't start though. If I pick one, the computer will restart after a few seconds. I have an XP recovery disk, but am affraid if I use it I will lose the saved documents on her computer. Her lab paper is saved on the computer. I didn't bother to back it up because I thought "I'm just installing Office XP. It won't harm anything." If you can please help me to get her saved paper off of it some how. That is all I need. If I need to reinstall Windows, thats fine as long as I get her paper first.
