!!! Mbr Error!!!
Please can some kind soul help me recover my data!

My laptop went into hibernation mode and never came out. MBR Error came up on the screen saying 'boot device failed' or something.

I tried putting in the recovery disc, but that won't work...

Anyone had this before? Does anyone know how to fix it?

Windows does not open. (!)

And when I try to boot up from the repair CD, it doesn't work. I enter 'R' for recover, and then it says some kind of failure... :(
