Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)
Windows 7 won't start so have been looking at various tests, I'm not an expert in anything tech wise. I have tried safe mode , doesn't work , tried a few restore test, no joy and I read somewhere to try start up tests, memory test ok but primary hard disk self test won't complete, it's stops at 73% and I've tried it a few times now. Please help
Probably it can still be recovered but stop trying to boot from the hard drive. The more you try to use it the more data become inaccessible. Get that hard drive out of the laptop and replace it with a new one and get a usb to SATA adapter to attache the old drive externally and try to recover files off of it.
