Windows XP will not boot on my laptop Error #2-07 on HDD. (Now with Minidump file) Hello, this is my first post here. I did try to search but didn't find anything. Right, so my problem. I have a HP laptop and a HP computer come TV, unfortunetaly they share the same remote. So when i turned off my TV last night, my laptop turned on. It was 2 o'clock so i pressed the off button on my laptop, as i've done many times. This morning the laptop wouldn't boot. It took me to the screen, None of them work. It goes to the windows XP screen, then i get the blue splash and it turns off. I did a hard drive check in bios, and it came up with the HD error #2-07, (not sure if this means anything to any1)? I'm wanting to backup all my files before i reinstall windows. Been a laptop i can't just take out the hard drive and put it in my PC. Couldn't i buy a USB and install windows on there and possibly boot from that? If so could some1 tell me how to do this, Or is there a way to fix my problem? Many thanks in advance.
