A friend of mine booted up his laptop the other day and got a blue screen with the above error message. Is there any way he can boot up and get in so he can back up some recent stuff he has put on the laptop.

Thanks

With internal hard drives in laptops - they can suffer from bad connections. Take the hard drive out of the laptop - most are very easy these days, just a latch and it slides out - then side it back into the connector firmly - maybe two or three times. Then try again.

I've revived two or three "failed" laptop drives in this way.

As above, but of course with the laptop powered off.
