Even all you want is to get the data first, which is what I suggest, then there are a couple things that can be done to get the data first. All of it depends on what you have available and your expertise.
The hard drive can be removed and put in a USB enclosure (laptop or desktop)
If a desktop, you can slave it to another desktop.
You can also use "puppy linux". This is a program you put on a CD and then boot with it. It runs completely in ram. It does not install itself.
With this, then you can access your data and copy it to a flash disc or burn to a CD.
Unfortunately I am not that versed it than program. 1 of the other volunteers uses it quite frequently.
I will see if I can find his writeup from another post on this forum.

Remember this is only to get the data off the drive. After that we can work on getting the computer to work.
Let us know what you want to do and we can help.
