Well, I can't imagine what really happened with my laptop, but it took a crap today. I ran the HD diagnostic from the phoenixBIOS and it came back #1-07 fail. It was giving me minor problems this morning and then it gave me the blue screen of death. i reboot and it says "disk reading error" I fear it can't be salvaged, from what I'm reading online, since there was tons of important stuff on that harddrive. I really hope someone here can help me out. I have a lot of poetry, songs and mp3s at stake here. Hopefully someone knows how to fix this and salvage my HD.
