I dropped my laptop, now have the error C:\clfs.sys

I accidently dropped my laptop on to its side. I turned it on and i was on skype and google for a while until i tried to search for a file and it froze and the a window came up saying somthing about Windows crashing. I did the little error test thing and it told me that the file was un-fixable. I don't think getting the disc to make it return to the factory setting would do anything because its corrupted i think. If you have any suggestions, please tell me.

Loose Hard Disk Check:
The first thing to check is whether the hard disk is physically connected to the motherboard properly. To do so:
  • Shut down and turn off the computer
  • Remove the AC Adapter
  • Remove the battery
  • Hold down the power button for 15-30 seconds to close the circuit and drain any residual power
  • Remove the panel on the underside of the laptop where the hard disk is housed
  • Remove and re-insert the hard disk by sliding it away from the connector and then gently but firmly pressing it back into the connector (no screws should need to be removed to do this step)
  • Replace the panel on the underside of the laptop to cover the hard disk
  • Replace the battery
  • Replace the AC Adapter
  • Turn on the computer and see how it responds
Post back once these steps have been implemented whether the system is stable. Sometimes these crashes/corruptions can occur due to a loose connection.

Windows Corruption:
Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

(Almost) dropped laptop, still working but very slow
Hi there. I was unfortunate and clumsy enough to almost drop my laptop the other day. I managed to catch it in the air before it hit the ground, but it immediately turned off because the battery was moved slightly when I caught it. It seemed to work afterwards though - except, as it turned out,...

Putting this in general because I don't know where else to put it. So my friend dropped her laptop. This video shows what happens when you push the power button. kTxwF6ls-Xk All I can say as of now is that the screen does not appear to be cracked or broken.

Hi folks, I dropped my old Dell Studio 15, and now it won't boot (it gets to the boot screen with the f12 and f2 options, but they don't work any more), although it still has power going to it. I wondered if there is any way I can get the files off of it by connecting to another laptop? I have...
