My wife laptop will not boot up because of what I believe is a corrupt operating system. I want to get some of her data files off her laptop to put on a new laptop when I get her one. She has Windows 7 64 bit loaded on the laptop it originally had Windows Vista and I did an upgrade on it. I have spoken to Best Buy, Staple and Office Depot. Best Buy will do it for $150 and give me an external 50 G external hard drive. Staples and Office Depot will do it for $69.99 and give me a flash drive. I was thinking if they can do it I should be able to give it a try. Anyone have a possible solution to my problem.
