Windows 7: I dropped my laptop, now have the error C:\clfs.sys

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.

Make sure your hard drive is securely connected. Dropping it could have easily jarred it somewhat. The factory restore should not be corrupted. You should have a hot key to restore it.

If I were you I'd make backups right away, be it by a Windows installation or by a Linux Live CD, since dropping the laptop can kill the hard drive.
