Hi all again.

I`ve been having a few problems with my laptops hard drive, It kept freezing and making really loud clicking noises when ever i tried to defrag it.
Now all of a sudden all i get is a nice blue screen whenever i try and boot.
The message is.- STOP: c0000221 unknow hard Error\systemroot\system32\ntdll.dll

Any help.?

I have another HD on the way but was wondering if this one can be saved?

Thanks BB.

By saved, do you mean fixed or just save data? Sounds like your hard drive had a hardware failure. If the drive can still be seen by the BIOS it MIGHT be possible to recover some data.

The more you run it the worse it will get so if recovery is what you are looking for I suggest you connect it to a desktop computer as a slave. If you don't have a desktop available you can use a USB adapter or enclosure.
