I have received this error message too. I can't find any windows 7 DVD that my computer came with. It is not under warranty any more but that is the least of my concerns. I had saved everything I was working on on that computer and I would do anything to save those files because I cannot ever get them back otherwise. I'm such an idiot for not backing up my files, but does anyone know how to get those files back?"Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
