    Hi everyone, I am sorry if this post is not in the right directory...

    A pair of months ago I bought my first smartphone, so I am quite the noob. Suddently last week it decided to restart every 12-13 seconds (literally), as long as I don't remove the battery, and I can't find a solution on the internet. Of course I could give it to the support, but they warned me that by this way I'll lose all my data, while I'd like to save at least some. On the internet I found a couple of people with my same problem and no answer (if we exclude the "I left it in its frenzy the whole night, when I woke it was resolved", which in my case mysteriously didn't work) can you help me?

    DETAILS - Samsung Galaxy mini 2 GT-S6500, no SD

    THE INCIDENT - I was playing a game when it freezed (no answer from any button short of the 8 seconds forced shut down), as it had already happened, so I pressed the "off" button and started waiting, since it usually worked; I fell asleep, and when I woke up the screen was on and black. When I restarted it manually it started the evil madness. I had not installed any new app.

    - Can't enter recovery mode by holding Volume up (+), Volume down (-) and Home button and then power on the phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! Try booting into the Recovery Menu and select "Wipe cache partition," which only clears temporary system data that might be mucking things up--no important personal data will be lost.

    Nothing happens, the recovery mode doesn't start
    I was wondering... isn't there any program capable of making my pc read the smartphone memory even if it is off?
