Update to my dilemma
I was in the process of the instructions given but before I created the bootable USB I got a computer technician to look at the computer and he says the HD is dead. says it will not even spin.
I will go ahead and try the suggestions above if you still want me to.
If the HD is actually dead is there a way to recover the data?

If the disk dead then you need to replace it to recover your file boot your computer with Puppy Linux and see if you can access your files form Puppy Linux.

Ok. I have puppy loaded to usb stick and booted the computer
I don't see the hard drive listed. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.
Where would it be on the screen that comes up using Puppy ?

Can you connect the hard disk drive to a another working computer and try recover your files that way. There could be a chance your hard disk drive have died if this is the case you cannot recover files on the hard disk drive by yourself only professional data recovery service can help you with the data recovery but it will cost you lots off money.
