    Get an external USB disk and a copy of Macrium Reflect. Create a recovery CD.
    Plug the USB disk in and boot off the CD.
    Make an image backup and a files backup.
    Return the laptop - minus the external disk, of course.

    cheers, Paul

    "Republic of Texas". Is that a local arrangement or have you given it back to the Mexicans?

    cheers, Paul

    no can do, it's a endless cycle of good opening then BSOD, repeats every, nada works just the recycle. Read that War of Thunder could cause false postives thus causing BSOD. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...alse+positives

    Booting from a Macrium boot CD should get you around the BSOD long enough to make a backup - unless it is a hardware problem.

    You need to install Macrium and then create Rescue Media on USB - Tools > Rescue Media. Plug it into the problem PC and re-boot, pressing F11 or F12 to bring up the boot menu. If you can't get the boot menu you should be able to get into the set up program by pressing Del, then change the boot order so the USB is first.

    cheers, Paul
