I used the search feature and found http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/32645/ this topic, and it didn't offer me that much help. So heres my story. I was using my computer normally and i believe a "windows live update" poped up. I was in the middle of something, so i canceled, and it would pop up again every 5 minutes. So when i was done, it popped back up and i clicked update, then it restarted. When restarting it loads the first screen that tells like what your computer is, then it goes to the black screen that has the option of: starting it nomrally, last known good configuration, and safe mode, and others. I have had this problem before, and just have done "last known good configuration", and it has worked fine. But this time, i cant boot nomrally, last known good configuration, or even in safe mode. It takes me to the blue screen that says: REGISTRY ERROR "STOP 0x00000051". I have no idea what to do. I have read about re-installing windows and such, but i have never done that. And my hardrive has precious data that i would be extremely p**sed if i lost. So any help would be GREATLY appreciated for i am extremely p**sed off and my computer is my life.

If he does this, it would be wise to backup all of his improtant data just in case.

How would i back up my files? I cant log into windows. Anything that has to do with clicking something is out of the question. And what CD should it use? Just any windows cd? I have a reinstallation disk that came with my comp.

Throw your hard drive into a working computer and set the hard drive from master to slave. Copy files over as needed. You can also copy the files you need onto cd or dvd.

I know that, but does stuff like that happen when running the disk back in? sorry for being difficult.

What do you mean "running the disk back in?" Do you mean putting the Windows XP cd into the cd rom drive?

As for being difficult, dont worry about it. Your not being difficlult. This is something that you are not used to. Everyone is like that at some point. It is how you learn.

Yes, i mean by running the windows xp cd in the cd-rom drive. I dont want to do that if there is the risk of loosing any hardrive data.

They only way you are going to lose data is by formatting the hard drive, performing a repair install, or having the drive physically die on you. This is why it is so important to have a secondary hard drive in your computer or perform daily or weekly backups of all your important data. This way, you do not have the fear of losing your data.

If you can, ask a friend if you can throw your hard drive into his computer (set your hard drive as slave) and backup your data onto cd's or dvd's.

It does not matter if you set it to slave before you take it out or after. Just make sure that the power is off when you do it. Same goes for plugging it into another computer.
