I'm not sure where memtest has come into this at all.
It was in your instructions!!
NOTE...do not put a blank cd in until burncdcc opens the tray for you
1. Start BurnCDCC
2. Browse to the ISO file you want to burn on cd/dvd ....in this case its memtest86.iso
3. Select the ISO file
4. click on Start

You will need to enter the BIOS and set the boot order so that it looks to boot from the CD drive before the hard drive.
I cannot do that. No matter what key I press (f8, f10, etc), it goes to the error message about the hard drive and then says to press Enter to continue. Then the screen says press F4 to enter set up. When I do that, it just sits there.
If you have some magic spell to get me into the BIOS, plmk!

If you need to continue to get the data off the drive first, you will need to remove the hard drive from your computer and slave it into a known good working computer.

What about a hard drive enclosure to read the data?

You'll need to remove the hard drive from the laptop to make the connection. Typically, you flip the laptop over and there will be a cover over the hard drive you unscrew to get to the hard drive. You can download the manual from the manufacturer for instructions specific to your laptop.

Is it IDE or SATA.
The link between enclosure and your laptop most likely will be USB so that is a easy decision.
Below I am attaching a picture of the different types of HD connectors. Top is IDE and bottom is SATA

From there purchase a external enclosure that will work with your hard drives connections. The connection from external to laptop most likely will be USB as I'm sure your laptop has at least one of those on it.
