    Recovering files from laptop HDD after repeated BSOD errors


    Hello,

    I am seeking support in recovering some files off what I am assuming is a failing/near death hard drive. I've tinkered with and built computers my whole life but am far from an IT expert and am a bit out of my depth.

    About a week ago my laptop (ASUS P-series P2540UA-AB51, 1 TB HDD, Windows 10) starting crashing somewhat frequently, always with different error codes. Eventually, it booted straight into Windows Recovery Environment. The only options to choose are "troubleshoot" or "turn off PC." None of the troubleshooting options worked, or would even execute. After trying to use a flash drive as a recovery disk and any other workaround google gave me, which all failed, I tried removing the hard drive to plug it into a working computer to recover at least my personal files.

    All I really care about is getting certain documents /photos/game files that my silly self never put into cloud storage.

    I have the HDD removed and in an enclosure. When I plug it in to a different laptop, the drive shows up, is recognized as "D Drive" starts loading everything on it, but after roughly 3 minutes or if I try to enter specific folders, the drive disappears completely. I'm doing this on a new computer and have tried using both USB slots.

    What could be causing this to happen? If the HDD is showing up... that means it isn't corrupted right? Or at least, this data is recoverable? Do I have any other recourse to save the contents of the hard drive? Am I just doing something wrong?

    Thank you very much for the help in advance.

    :)

    Hi Johan,

    It is possible that your
    HDD was unreadable
    causing the error message to appear. We recommend that you perform these troubleshooting steps and check if there are any changes:


    • Shutdown
      your
      PC.

    • Unhooked
      the
      HDD
      and
      turn on
      your
      PC.

    • Reconnect
      your
      HDD
      and
      restart
      your
      PC.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you contact your
    laptop/computer's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

    Recovering files from laptop HDD after repeated BSOD errors

    BSOD - Registry Error

    Your BSOD code is 0X000000051

    Here's the Google search I did for it: https://www.google.com/search?q=0x0...j5.399j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=122&ie=UTF-8

    There is a hotfix available that might help, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/810558

    This thread makes a few good suggestions too: http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-hel...dows-7-pro-sp1-registry-error-0x00000051.html

    +1 to listing your full system specs, OS version, etc. I did only look at your BSOD log file.

    Run a Diskchk /R (I know you already ran one, so you can skip this)

    Run SFC /SCANNOW

    Report back.
