My laptop would not boot to desktop, only to command mode, I tried to start up in safe mode and all other mode options...nothing helped.
I removed the hard drive and attempted to extract data via sata cable and it only makes every other computer/laptop I connect it to, freeze. I tried a couple different data transfer/ recovery softwares and still nothing.
Can anyone shed some light on the corruption in my life haha?

Seriously though, any thoughts as to the specifics of my problem? I've searched this and other sites and I haven't found any successful fixes.

Dead drive is dead. You could try a Linux boot CD and see if that helps, sounds like the mechanics inside are dying.

It is possible that your system was not properly shutdown during your previous use. You can try to use chkdsk /f to fix the errors on your system drive that prevents it from loading your windows system, since you could go up to command line mode on boot up.

thanks, it let's me go to ati command but then doesn't let beyond that. If I select f8 and boot in safe mode or any other, it won't let me go past the next step. So it won't let me try chkdsk/f or anything else. So unless there is a command key upon boot or a software to recover partition I don't think I'll be able to get past that second step after the safeboot etc.

Thank for any and all suggestions.

Are you trying to boot off the drive in different hardware? That won't work well.
