hi all

the power flicked on and off twice a couple of weeks ago as it was at that time. my computer was on and when i went to restart it didnt load. i couldnt get into safe mode but i did manage to get it to boot from cd and did a repair. the repair said it had bad sectors and said it had fixed it. it restarted and it was no better so i tried the dskch again and it said the a damaged sector could not be repaired now if i turn it on it just comes up bad disc read.

well thats the story but what i would like to know is if i take it to a computer technician would they be able to save any of my programs, photo's etc etc or is has it done too much damage.

i would appreciate your advice

thanks
