Give Puppy Linux a try. It runs in RAM and should allow you to recover your data. Puppy Linux Guide

Have you tried starting the machine in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Command Prompt?
It's possible the file system is corrupt.

If it will boot, you should be presented with a command session window. Type chkdsk /r c: and press Enter. Note the spaces in the command.
You'll probably be told the drive is in use and ask if you want to run the check on the next boot. Type Y and press Enter. Type exit and press Enter to close the command session. Restart the machine.
This should start a comprehensive disk check that will attempt to read and recover any data located in bad sectors. It will take a while (if it runs)...be patient...let it finish.
Let me know how this goes or if the machine will not boot to Safe Mode.
Bad sectors are never a good sign and may be indicative of the HDD failing.
