My old windows XP laptop is pretty much inaccessible. I think the damage from the virus attack back in March finally took its toll on my old XP.
I lost a lot of files but have managed to save a majority of my most important ones On flash Drives. The ones I haven't though are most likely lost for good.
On boot up, no matter what setting I choose, my computer gives me a blue screen with an error.
I can't even Access any variation of Safe mode. I get a blue screen there but the message i get is very strange, it just says: "~?" (without the quotes mind you.) on a blue screen. I managed to get the computer to boot up when it did this once before but then I had tried every setting but one. I tried that start up setting this time around and it didn't work either.
Is it possible to install Ubuntu on the DOS/Console thingy boot up?
