BSOD after AVG uninstall - no access to HDD now
Posted on 2013-01-16
I was uninstalling AVG on a Windows XP laptop what belongs to my client because AVG wasn't working properly. After the uninstall I had to restart the laptop and when it restarted BSOD come up. Since then I have tried these things:
1) Tried chkdsk /r from Recovery console on the laptop itself - ended with a message that some problems cannot be fixed
2) Removed the HDD to scan with chkdsk /r and /f when HDD was connected to another computer - similar error messages when completed. Windows partition is inaccessible as well and when connected to another PC it prompts to format that partition.
3) I have tried recovery programs like iCare Data Recovery to recover information but no luck so far.
Any advice how to get this partition up and running again?
Thanks in advance.
