    does using this erase everything on the hard drive and reinstall windows?

    something is fucked with my computer and windows wont load. any way to save the data other than removing the hard drive from the laptop?

    What exactly happens when you try to boot? If you have a CD, boot off that and try running the repair option. What version of Windows?

    tried booting off cd and it couldnt fix it. it would just stick in the "microsoft corporation" screen.

    ended up reformatting.

    thankfully most of my important files were on another partition

    Right on, second drives or backup partitions are a necessity!
