If your laptop has developed a fault, but your hard drive still works, the best solution is to remove the drive yourself and install it into an enclosure. You'll still have Windows on it so you could use it as a secondary OS, or format it and use it as a new external back up device.
This is also an ideal situation if your laptop has failed due to the infamous nVidia defect, so at least by using this method, you can still keep your data. You could also use this method to make your own portable hard drive for your Wii U, since the cost of a sata drive and enclosure is usually cheaper than buying a pre made external drive.
It may also be the case that you just want to upgrade your laptop hard drive for an SSD for speed, or just want a bigger sized disc. You can still use your old drive though for the method in this video.
