The first thing I suggest it to take your hard drive out of the computer and place it in an external hard drive case. then you can connect that hard drive case to another computer to get the files. Here is an article about recovering data from a hard drive. This will show you how to get your files off your hard drive. You can also put the hard drive in another computer if you know how. Both these ways will let you access files through the start menu > computer >choose the drive to open.Then we can start to find out what is wrong with your computer... From what you have explained I am already thinking of three hardware causes.
- power supply
The reasons I am not saying it is a file or windows problem is because the computer did start after 20 min. But to make sure you could insert the Operating system cd to do some diagnostic checks. Please let me know what you have tried in detail when it first happened and why do you think the problem stopped?And then what have you tried this time?
