So I come home and the power strip in which I left the RaspberryPi has tripped and it was off. I restart it, but I notice that the RaspberryPi wasn't giving any output when I plugged the monitor in. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and nothing seems to work. Note that the RaspberryPi turned on, but it was just a solid red light. My last resort is to wipe the memory card clean, but I have a lot of programs that I do not want to loose. I've looked everywhere, but nobody seems to be having the same problem. Help?
Edit - additionally, is there a way to get information off of the sd card? If I were to wipe the card, would there a way to keep files? I am running a Windows OS, and it does not recognize the file system in the regular file manager (duh).
