  1. So I got the BSOD on my dell laptop. A stop error message.
    It will not start in normal mode, safe mode, last good configuration. Absolutely nothing.

    I have my reinstall discs but I'm nervous about losing information.

    Could someone help me. Will I lose all my info?
    Is there a way to back it up even though I can't get passed this blue screen at all?

    if you pull the drive and use it as an external, you can recover data from a second computer provided the drive has not gone bad.
