Windows 7 64bit Home premium Wont Boot Up...help!

Hi,

I have a HP Pavilion DV6-1330ev Laptop
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6600
Intel® Centrino® processor technology
2.2 Ghz, Level 2 cache 2 MB
320 GB Hitachi TravelStar 7k500 SATA Hard Disk Drive 7200 rpm
3GB DDR3
Windows 7 home premium 64bit
ATI Radeon HD 4530 Graphics


A few days ago,my laptop was working fine..when suddenly it started to hang up..i tried to logoff but it dosent...i waited for 15 min but it didnt respond...then i force shutdown it..when i restarted it,it showed up with BSOD saying "unmountable_boot-volume"
and then restarts itself again...it came up with "windows has failed to logon" i selected "Startup Repair"
it took 2 days continuously repairing it up...but it goes on for "attempting repairs''...finally.i lost my patience and press cancel..it hanged up again..i restarted my PC it again came up with BSOD again mentioned above.

When i tried to run startup repair,this time it wont start...
Then i tried to load windows in safe mode,no luck,in safe mood with command prompt to run chkdsk,but i wont load..it stuck up at driver.sys...

Then i googgled up,to find out any solution..
I came up with a solution of starting my PC with windows repair cd..
i gave it a try also..but the windows startup wont load....i waited for more than 10hrs but it didnt came up..
Then i tried System Diagnostics (F2)...and came up with
" Hard Disk Test
Hard Disk 1
Quick (303)
Hard Disk Test Failed"

I googled up again,i got an answer to run tools for checking up my hard drive,i downloaded DFT from Hitachi and run it ...but it wont..it stuck up with a cursor blinking and saying "Loading DFT"...i waited for 2 hrs but nothing happens...

Then i ran seagate tools..it runs..check for errors ...it came up with answer : Bad Sectors Found..
then i ran up advance test to repair bad sectors..it repaired 2 sectors and then : "Repair Failed Bad Sectors Found.."

i was just googling up to see if Bad sectors Can be repaired...
i found HDD Regenerator..but i dont know if it can really repair Bad Sectors on my hard drive..

I have 2 qs to ask...
First of all, i have alot of important data on my hard drive...
1) should i first go for HDD Regenerator to repair Bad Sectors...
Or 2)Should i backup my data....?

if,i should backup my data first...there are many qs on my mind..
1)which software would be the best for backing up data...?
2) should i clone my hard disk or create an image of my hard disk?
3)or should i use ubuntu to back up my data...


Your help is all what i need...

If the HD Drive can not be repaired, I would replace.

Use your Ubuntu Live CD

Back up your files BEFORE attempting any repairs.

I would suggest that you use your Live Ubuntu CD to copy your files onto an external drive.

Since the drive tests you did indicate a failed drive, it may not be possible to recover your files with "normal" means. If you can't access/read the drive from another drive with Ubuntu you'll most likely have to get professional forensics help to recover. IT is VERY expensive.

Hitachi DFT is an excellent test but obviously it has to be run from CD and not from the very HD it needs to repair. So download the ISO and slow burn to CD, boot it and see if you can repair the HD at least enough to copy your files off.

Ubuntu can read many file systems (including NTFS).
I think that most Linux Live CDs can do it.
I can access any files on my NTFS partitions, when I am in Ubuntu.

You should be able to access any Windows drive/partition.

Of course if the drive is dead it won't help.
