    Pull the hard drive and put it aside. Install another hard drive and install Windows on the new drive. Doing this will accomplish 2 things. It will save your files for possible future recovery and get the laptop running again

    Remove the hard drive and place it in another computer as a second drive. Try accessing it that way

    We won't know what the actual problem is, but I wouldn't try booting the old drive in another computer, just take the files you need off of it

    terry5880,
    The pictures will be there until you do something to get them off... Remember this?
    "Remove the hard drive and place it in another computer as a second drive. Try accessing it that way"...

    You won't have this hard drive as the boot drive, so BSOD's won't matter as long as you can access the drive. There is a possibility that the drive is so bad that nothing can be recovered

    If the laptop drive is a SATA drive, you can connect it directly to a desktop computer that has SATA ports, using a SATA data and power cable. If you want to do it on another laptop you can buy a USB external enclosure either SATA or IDE and use it that way. The external USB enclosure can also be used on a desktop computer
