Yesterday my HP laptop stopped all applications and started spewing error messages stating "Delayed Write Failed, Failed to save all the components for the file \\System32\\0000036d8. The file is corrupted or unreadable. This error may be caused by a PC hardware problem." After these messages stopped popping up, I went into my documents folder and everything was gone - programs, files, even my internet browser has disappeared. Oddly enough, Windows Live Messenger is the ONLY program that still functions.
I'm running Windows 7, and the Windows system check scanned my computer automatically after this originally occurred. It says that drive C:\ is unreadable, RAM memory speed decreased significantly and may cause a system failure, Hard drive does not correspond to system requests, Damaged hard drive clusters detected and private data is at risk, Hard drive rotational speed exceeds system limits and may cause a system failure, Boot sector of the hard drive is damaged, Hard drive space less than technical limits, and, this one made me laugh, RAM exceeds temperature limits at 83 degrees Celsius.
I've read other posts here regarding similar issues, but because I don't have access to the internet on the damaged laptop, I can't use the methods prescribed. Any ideas on what I should do?
