So my laptop (Sony Vaio EC, just about 4 years old) has been acting really weird the last few days. Its been really slow and freezing up for short periods of time. Some days ago I had to restart it, and it started disk checking. Since it was taking too long, I restarted it again and it worked fine, though a bit slow. After that its been really slow and constantly freezing. Sometimes when I restart it I get in, sometimes it crashes on startup, sometimes it displays the message "Operating system not found," and sometimes it goes in disk check, which always ends in BSOD (though I have gotten it to work after one of those). The last time I was in, I tried to system restore, but there were no available restore points. Then it went into another BSOD, and since then, whenever I try to start it it reads "operating system not found."
Ok, I get my computer is on its last legs, but is there any way I can temporarily get in/recover my files?
