|I got the files off the hard disk using ubuntu, but now I'm really scared. I tried out that disk i made from your link, but after it did the "windows is loading files screen," it went back to the same standard vista loading screen and froze up, after about a minute or two i heard the cd spin down. Then i tried the Toshiba recovery dvd that was made with the laptop. The same thing happened. Also I thought i'd say this, while working on it, the hard drive cover fell off! Had this thing under a year and the screws already vibrated themselves loose. The hard drive looks to still be in, and while transfering files from the laptop to the desktop it had no problems. |
The thing finally relented and allowed me to use the recover disks, so i'm in the clear now. IDK what it was really, i just tried another time before i brought this laptop to a shooting range or something and it loaded it up right away.
