Windows 7 not Booting

So my HP laptop of a few years has gotten old and cluttered since 2011, I was trying to attach a file to email when it froze very badly for over an hour, I then tried ctrl alt delete, no bueno, it failed.

Eventually got tired of waiting and hit ctrl alt delete, and it said again something like:

"Command failed, reboot or shutdown"

I rebooted, and it failed, time and time again, then i got it working once, freezes after a minute, then bsod.

 

I can get to the startup menu, I haven't tried all options yet, running diagnostics. Anyway here's some photos of what's been happening: my aim is to get the computer running to send the attachment haha, also i want all my files.

 

I'm running a memory test now, it'll take a while though, I tried a hard disk check but it i "isn't installed"

Memory test

failed, startup test failed.

"No device to to boot to"

Hdd isn't clicking, sounds functional.

Tried running the HP recovery manager? You could also run a live linux distribution and try a disk diagnostics from there (Linux Mint - program Disks is the first thing that comes to mind, but you can use anything you want). You can also recover some of you data that way and try to format your system

this might not help without restore point... google that error code c000021a and try what ever you can find.

Hmm interesting, I tried hp recovery manager, entirely useless, the options aren't selectable except the call centre numbers.

 

Could I pull the Hdd out and sata ---->usb it to a new laptop?

If your laptop allows it why not. But I still think using a live linux distribution would be the easiest way to retrieve your data, you just burn it on a DVD and boot from it, without any installations

I'll do that first of course :).

 

Thanks man, I'll give it go

 

Edit: talked to my local computer wizard, he's high up in IT somewhere, government I think and has worked as a contractor for large companies like IBM and such in the past, he said your solution would work, or even just something like check disk, he said the partitions are probably screwed up just enough not to boot, but a simple fix, he has all the software discs should Linux fail.
