    I have an HP Pavilion Laptop with Windows XP that stopped working today. The only change that I have made to my computer was that I set up a password to login, two days ago. The computer worked several times without a hitch over the last two days but this morning, after the Windows screen with the scrolling green bar, the blue Windows screen (the one right before the list of the accounts with the thin lines that scroll along the top and bottom with the Windows XP logo) appears but the scrolling stops and nothing happens. I turned the computer on an hour or so before I noticed this but had to do a few tasks before returning, I am wondering if this was a lock or standby mode. I have tried everything from waiting to pushing the power button during start-up so as to start in every option possible (the last known config., normally, safe mode), removing all power, ctrl+alt+dlt and don't know what to do, I even tried the reset button on the bottom of the computer. I don't want to use a system recovery disk, if possible, because I have term papers and the such that are not backed up. I have looked at all the other queues on this but none seem to fit the same. No new hardware, software, programs, nothing new I just saved a paper and shut down.
