does the win xp installation CD work ?
have a read here on how to repair
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185

you may want to try ubuntu
------------------------------------------------------------------------

UBUNTU Stand Alone CD
It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
goto http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download the ISO http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

You can also run from a USB device now - if the Machine supports booting off a USB Stick
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

full details are here (Note this is for version 9 - so the start up options are slightly different )
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...dows-computer/

click on the image "download ubuntu"
Select a location
then begin download
Save the file onto your PC – remember where you saved it – so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/
OR
you can use this stand alone ISO Burner to burn the ubuntu onto CD ftp://terabyteunlimited.com/burncdcc.zip

When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see a screen - with Language on the left panel and two option images labelled

== > Try ubuntu
== > Install ubuntu

You can try Ubuntu without making any changes to your computer, directly from this CD

Use OPTION 1 "Try ubunto without any change to your computer" ONLY this option this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install onto the PC - you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive.., so repeat only use option 1

Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop
This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working

You may see your Harddrive on the desktop - if not have in look in the places on the tool bar at the top of the screen.

If you can see your harddrive – see if you can find the your datafiles –
XP look in “documents and settings” under the user name you had on the PC
Vista/Windows 7 look in “user” under the user name you had on the PC

Now if you have a USB flash drive or external harddrive – you should be able to copy your data from the harddrive onto the USB device

----------------------------------------------------------
Version 11.10
to see the harddrive
on the left hand side menu
look for the
Home Folder
the icon = Folder with a house image
click once

at the top of the window that opens you should see
Devices
click on the icon of a drive
Now all your folders should open

to find all your data files
XP look in “documents and settings” under the user name you had on the PC
Vista/Windows 7 look in “user” under the user name you had on the PC

to check the Disk Intergrity
goto Dash home this is the icon at the top of the lefthand menu - click on that icon
Now in the window that opens
type DIS
a list of applications will open
choose Disk Utility by double clicking on the Icon

Beware this utility can wipe all your data off the harddrive - so proceed with caution

from the window that pops up - choose your harddrive - by clicking on it

look at the top right hand side - you should see a SMART Status ( green dot - disk is healthy)
under that will be
SMART DATA
this will provide a summary of the disk status

you could also Run Self-test - note this takes some time to run
you have three options
  • short
  • extended
  • conveyance
