is there an error code or a pop up that tells you anything? did you install a new software lately? we need a little more information please

Can you read any data on the drive?

Will Windows load and boot normally?

Were your files deleted?

Is the problem you can see the files but not open them?

Is there a particular error message you see?

"Any kind of reason" doesn't describe your problem adequately enough to provide you with valid advice (as you might note, almost everyone jumped in with their pet hypothesis and their favoured solution). There are dozens of problems your description can encompass, and each of them has a different solution - which is typically useless for anything else.
Let's try narrowing down the problem first and looking for possible solutions second.

First. Does your laptop power on?
Second. If it powers on, does it boot into Windows?
Third. If it boots into Windows, can you log in?

Then, if you can log in:
1. What files are you trying to access? (by which I mean what sort of data they are supposed to contain, not what actually is inside) If you can access the folder the files are stored in, what do you get when you right-click one of them and choose "properties"?
2. How are you trying to access them?
3. What actually HAPPENS when you try accessing your files? What were you EXPECTING to happen?
If you encounter any error messages, post them here. And please be precise in your answers.

    See me too have gone through the same situation, few months ago when i was trying to open my hard drive for my some important presentation i was not able to access my data. Then i asked me friends what to do. Many of them asked me to go for free available software online. I tried them but then also i have not got my data back. Then after few days somebody told me that why don't you consult some data recovery company. I asked them is they really going to help me he said yeah! for sure. As per him i did the same consulted a data recovery company and got my data back. Also the company told me whenever you are not able to access data from the hard drive dont experiment something by your own as hard drive is very sensitive media so, trying to tamper the hard drive again and again means you can lost your data for ever.

    Hope this thing will help you out.
