Recovering Data from a Laptop


I have an HP Compaq laptop which I had not used for several years. It has important data on it that I now need. When I start laptop I get ‘BOOTMGR missing. Press CTRL ALT DEL to restart’. I would not get anything other than this message, and would not even have an option to do a recovery using the disk, because I don’t have one.


I have a Compaq Presario Laptop which is struggling to start up. It constantly tells me that there is a boot error on the system, and recommends that I do ctrl alt delete in order to restart the system. This never works, and so I am not able to get into Windows and access the data which is contained in there. This is particularly important, as my son uses the system for his college work. I therefore need the data to be available as a matter of urgency.
