A few days ago i recently got the "blue screen of death" for the very first time running windows 7..

Today i left my laptop on and went to sleep when i woke up it was trying to boot...
but was stuck on this error "The header checksum does not match the computed checksum"

I tried booting again but got the same error... i ran ubuntu live cd and tried to save my data files but it wont access my hard drive either... neither can i run recovery since it was also on a partition on the hard drive.

I have an HP Compaq CQ 70..
3GB Ram
Dual Core 2.0
250GB HDD
originally came with vista i upgraded to win 7
Kindly help me recovering the data...

If you can't access w/Ubuntu, then it's likely that there's a problem with your hard drive.
Each use of the hard drive increases the chance that you won't recover anything. I'd strongly suggest looking into professional data recovery services - but be aware that they are very, very expensive!

Hi you may need to run a diagnostic on the drive but save your data first do you have a usb enclosure to try hooking up to another computer in order to save it,hdd diagnostics are available from the hdd makers support site links to many of them here TACKtech - Your Technical Computer Information Resource!
