I'm running a 5 year old Dell XPS 7100 with windows 7 home premium.  Have a ATI Radeon HD 5040 SATA 1 TB hard drive that I know has some issues.  Windows is up to date with all systems updates downloaded as necessary.The system was working fine, but the hard drive seemed to spin forever.  Did a Dell Diagnostic scan on the hard drive and the error code 0F00:065D resulted. 

 

Decided to run chkdsk to see if i could find and fix the error which I think was a huge mistake.  After chkdsk ran for alomst a day and didn't finish, I hard restarted my computer thinking it was stuck.  I now know that doing that (after I subsequently read all the forum posts) was probably a bad thing to do.  When I restarted the computer it went right back to doing a chkdsk and it seems to have frozen again at stage 4 of 5 with no movement at all.

 

Stupidly, I have not backed up my files on the C drive and need to know what to do next to get back to my desktop and get my computer and files backed up before the drive fails completely, if it's already not too late.

 

Please help.

Do you have any other computers? If so, you might be able to take out your HDD and then get an HDD data restoration kit (also known as a sata to usb adapter). Then you could hook that up to your other PC.

Is this the only suggestion you have?  I was kind of thinking there was a way to get past the chkdsk issue and somehow repair the system to allow me to access the desktop.

Maybe try defragmenting the disk.
