Data recovery

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Been given a laptop to get some data of off. Basically, the Laptop stopped start up recently - gets to the Windows 7 start up screen (the logo) and doesn't proceed. Try to put it into safe mode and stalls on classpnp.dll

The laptop went out of warranty last week.

I've taken the drive out of the laptop and plugged it into my external drive enclosure and I am getting two drives: D and E (D - System and E - HP Recovery). I am not getting the operating system data?

Does HP have some sort of protection on the disk to prevent this data being viewed?

I've tried to open the disk management console but it stalls on 'Connecting to virtual disk service'.

The data is required asap which is why i'm not trying to fix it yet.

Any ideas as I know HP had some sort of disk protection in the past.

I've always just done as you have and connected it to my main rig. Although I didn't use an enclosure but just connected it via SATA.

I don't know if it makes any difference but have you tried doing the same?
