I shutdown my laptop (Dell M1530) last night everything went fine. I turned it on this morning and it kept booting into Dell Direct Media thing. Anyway it just won't start with my OS which is Windows 7. I can't access any files etc...
I tried Windows 7 repair and it said it repaired start-up items but it still starts the media direct thing. I tried going into safe mode but my OS isn't even listed there! Even system restore through the Windows 7 disc doesn't do anything.
I finally ran a built-in diagnostics after booting laptop and it detected a problem with the Hard drive, the error message is below:
Error Code: 0142
Msg: Error Code: 2000-0142
I didn't backup anything (was going to soon) so it would help if someone can help me to recover anything if that's possible. I've only got a few important stuff that would be difficult to replace but most I don't need. Can anyone help? Many thanks.
