The error codes which represent the # 300 or above usually indicate that the issue might be with the Hard Drive or the RAM Modules.
You may first try performing the Hardware Diagnostics and check for any issues with the Hard Drive or RAM Modules.
If the issue still persists, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Hope this Helps.

I was in the same problem that you are going through. But one of my friend suggested me Hard Drive Recovery software that really works. This hard drive deleted data recovery tool, which assisted me to recover my precious data from the hard disk and it is also capable to recover data from the external hard drive. You can get this awesome software from the internet.

Windows Boot Manager message: Windows encountered a problem communicating w/a device connected to your computer. Error may be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB Drive...

Make sure there is nothing attached to the laptop,remove all devices like keyboard,mouse, flash drives and retry. If still having same error flip the laptop over and remove the battery and open up the 2 other compartments that have a screw holding them. One holds the memory modules and the other the hard drive, check and re seat all connections, then try again. If you still have the same error your hard drive is most likely failing,
