Hi everyone, this is my 1st time here and I was wondering if someone can give me a hand, yesterday my laptop was hit with a virus and I tried to run my anivirus scan but then it came up with a blue screen and died, tried restarting my system but it kept coming up with disk read error press ctrl alt del, then I tried to boot to the recovery console but nothing is happening at all, just get a blank black screen, removed the HDD from my loptop and slaved it to another machine, i can see the drive but can't access it. Can any one help please :)

Welcome to geeks to go

A few questions

To clarify. What is the OS of the laptop?
What is the OS of the other computer? Because a OS with Fat/Fat 32 can't see NTFS file system. Assuming your laptop is a NTFS file system.

Have you tried booting in to safe mode?
