Toshiba Laptop Boot Menu Loading Instead of Startup

I opened Toshiba Laptop - (Toshiba Satellite A665-S6065) maybe after a period of around 4.5 Years.

All my very Important Data is in it and I want to get it.

But, now when Opening the Laptop; the Screen goes on to the Boot Menu and asks for the Option to either go on to the Hard Drive or the CD/ DVD Option.

The Hard Drive which Shows up the name is ( Hitachi HTS545050B9A300).

Specs:

1) Windows 7
2) Toshiba Satellite A665-S6065
3) Hitachi HTS545050B9A300

Please, tell me a Solution to the Problem where I will be able to login to the startup Screen Easily without losing my internal Data.

Attached are some of the images of the Laptop Screen and the Laptop ID details..

You might need to repair the boot loader. But before you try that, in the boot screen there, is the hard drive selected as the first boot device?

All is not lost. You can access all of your unencrypted data by attacking the hard drive to a USB to SATA connector and accessing it via another computer.

I would delete that screenshot of your Windows product key unless that's OEM.

Edit-

Okay, I see from the screenshot that the hard drive is the first boot device. Follow these two tutorials.


MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record

Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

Before you try that, open the bottom of the computer and reseat the RAM slots. You may need to read your manual, but the RAM should be in the bottom of the computer and the plastic cover comes off with a few screws. Do not touch the RAM copper contacts. Hold the RAM on the sides.

The boot menu screenshot says at the bottom that...


[ HDD/SSD Hitachi HTS545050B9A300 ] is failed


...which suggests that the bios cannot boot from the drive and has displayed the boot menu to let you choose another device to boot from.


You may be able to recover your files by following F22 Simpilot's suggestion to use a usb adapter to read the drive on another PC.

You Mentioned "You can access all of your unencrypted data by attacking the hard drive to a USB to SATA connector and accessing it via another computer."...

What is the way to do it..? Can you explain that out to me..?

You can use a 2.5" HDD as an external usb drive and connect it to another PC with an adapter cable such as this one on Amazon
or an external enclosure like this one.

@F22 Simpilot & @Bree...

1) do you think that opening a laptop after 4.5 years; can make the boot file go away from the Laptop and now it won't open up till the start up..?

2) If Not, what else could be the problem behind it..?

3) can You advise and also answer remaining of my queries which I asked earlier.

Both of the Links which you showed, does it require manually to pull out the hard drive from the Laptop and then insert it into the case and access it with the cable.

Is, their any way to access the Laptop Hard Drive without the need to Extract the HD manually from inside it...

and what is SATA HD... the Laptop's HD is Called as SATA..?
