Short version if that's possible.... I turned on my Gateway PC today running Vista and was given the BSOD. Did not panic, simply rebooted. Unfortunately it never got past the initial screen. I did go into BIOS but am unsure what to look for. Did go into Advanced boot menu... Safe mode and safe mode with command pretend they are going to start but kind of just get stuck and never do anything more then say please wait.... Advanced Boot screen option repair your computer also does nothing but kick me back to BSOD. MY SYSTEM DID NOT COME WITH A DISK. Here's the big issue, my daughters grad photos from last week are on my hard drive. I had not had time to put them into discs yet. This was the most important day of her life. Please please help me.
