Computer.. DEAD.. RIP

Computer was working completely fine, really fast as usual. no problems what-so-ever. My girlfriend is coming over and i need to meet her at the station in 5 mins. (station is 10 mins away). "I don't have time to click 3 times to shut this down!!" *presses the atx power off to auto shut down*

Girlfriend has gone home. I wanna play with my pc. Switch on, POST, XP bootscreen. Black.... i wait.... wait.... wait.... nothing. No HD activity, nothing.

AHA i shall try safe mode!

Safe mode gets to agp440.sys driver. Sticks... 20 mins go by, nothing happens. Damn. RESTART! try again. same again.

I have some important college work on the hard drive. It's not on the second one HD either!

Help me get this baby back on the road!

(PS i don't want to sit through a full system recovery)

If it's overclocked at all, lower it and try again.

If you can get into Bios, lower all your settings to " Lower failsafe defaults. If that doesn't work, short your pin 2 and 3 on your CMOS and pull the battery out for aprox 30 seconds. Put it back in. That will usually bring it back up in limp mode.
