Ubuntu is a magical operating system seems to work, even with the computer is on fire and the hard drive smashed to little bits :P But... as for your issue are you able to dock the hard drive in another computer by any chance? You could run a chkdsk on it. You could also try resetting your bios back to defaults, even if they are already, might be something going on. If your laptop has a way to flash the bios via flash drive you could always give that a try as well. Or... pull the battery, unplug the power, and pull out the cmos battery, then hold the power button for 20 seconds, plug it all back in and see if it resets the bios.

 

I only mention the bios reset and flash because of a previous experience where the bios was made all wonky and not so nice thanks to some rootkit, but after a resetting to the defaults all seemed to work fine again.

STOP 24 BSOD Error

 

Error can result from damaged file...damaged file system (NTFS)...or failing hard drive, among other things.

 

I would try the easiest (chkdsk /r) attempted solution first...then probably run a hard drive diagnostic to assess the functional status of the hard drive.

 

A damaged NTFS is the most troublesome, IMO, since virtually the only way that can be determined, IME, is for chkdsk /r to assert such when it tries to run.  Chkdsk /r cannot overcome damaged NTFS file systems.
