Yesterday i plugged in a usb internet phone, my pc frooze so i turned it off.

I turned it back on and it kept freezing at the windows xp screen with the wee bar that goes from side to side, it keeps freeing there.

I have tried to start in safe mode and it freezes beforewith all the writing flashing down.

I have tried all the f8 options no joy I CANNOT boot into windows. I have tried setting the bios to default settings no luck.

I have also tried booting my Backtract cd (just so i could use the net) and it freesez too

Is there anything else i could try before i wipe it? and install xp again? I Dont want to lose all my data

try running the xp cd and hitting repair - not the repair console but the next option. This will reinstall windows without destroying the data in my docs etc.
