Question Toshiba Satellite C70D not booting (Win 10)

Hi everyone.

My Toshiba Satellite C70D laptop won't boot past the recovery mode. The night before it 'died' I was trying to save a doc and it said I didn't have permissions to save to the folder and that I had to be an Admin (which I am). The next morning I woke to a black screen. Did what I guess you'd call a hard restart? (pressing power button till it switches off) and it came up doing the Recovery Mode but then went black again after a minute or so (the numlock key is still lit).

I've tried various rescue disks but it never seems to find a CD rom to boot from and the only USB info it will pick up is a Windows 10 image I created off my pc. It goes to load the files. I see the small blue windows logo as though it's going to work and then it just goes black again. I've got the boot order to USB, CD and then HDD. It has come up (can't remember how I got to it) saying I was missing or have a corrupt msachi. Sys file.

I should add the only way I've managed to get that far is by using csm boot mode and not uefi.
Any ideas on how I can save this please?

Thank you very much.

Just to say that in the end I removed the hard drive, put it in an external reader and ran Chckdsk and scannow on it. It solved all the problems and it is now back in the laptop and is up and running again.
