It's a bug or hardware fault.

Be sure to report it to the laptop maker and ask for a fix or repair.

Windows is not open source so we can't go in and find out if there is a bug in the code. If it's defective our options are usually limited to returning the defective product since the makers rarely seem to respond to error reports.

Here's the even funnier screen shot I took on Windows 7 with a similar failure.

Woah. This is on a laptop that never offered Windows XP. Someone must have forgotten to update those drivers or code.

Yes. Your files are at risk.

Here's the simple test. Hand me your laptop and I'll hand you another blank laptop. If you can't restore your files that means your files are at risk.

Some folk learn that lesson the hard way.

The driver issue is very serious. I'm encountering makers that don't have the means to correct a driver so we must return the product as defective since they can't fix it. This happened to me with a HP last year.
