    This aurrs even in safe mode, I want to reformat, but I would like to back up my Qbooks first, I can boot from a CD, and go into the Bios without crashing, any help I would be very thankful

    For that error I have done a Google search and below are the results:


    As for the Qbooks getting a backup before doing anything seeing as this is a laptop leaves out taking the hard drive to another computer and making it a slave and accessing it that way but you would need an adaptor to get it to match the IDE cables.

    The only other way I know of is to use a Linux live cd and boot from the cd-rom drive.

    If you want to save the data on your hard drive

    Goto http://www.knoppix.org/
    Click on the flag that ha the USA flag in it
    Scroll the window down just a bit and click on the Download button
    Scroll the window down and click the http server nearest you
    On this screen click I Accept
    This screen click Parent Directory
    This screen click knoppix-dvd
    Find KNOPPIX_V4.0.2DVD-2005-09-23-EN.iso and click to download and save this to your computer and write it down where it is to be saved

    This is a 3.5 Gb file and will take several hours on broadband to download and then you will have to burn the ISO file to a DVD so you can use it as a Linux bootup

    When you get this done please post back for further instructions
