Yep, find a bootable Windows Environment such as the Ultimate Boot CD (free).

I use BART from Avast, they have a 30-day free trial but it's not a free product.

All you'll need to do is boot with one of these CDs (they usually carry a full copy of Windows XP), copy the important files off onto an external USB hard drive, and then you can nuke-and-reload your system.

If that for some reason isn't an option, you can rip the hard drive out of your computer, plug it into an external IDE enclosure or USB connector (they're about $25), plug it into another computer's USB port, and copy the data off onto that computer.

It means your HD is either close to, or dead.

I would find attach it to a friend's computer and copy important stuff off it ASAP

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

As others say, your disk is nearly dead. So, if you have problems getting data off the disk, try some bootable LINUX sollution, like Knoppix. Burn Knoppix CD on your friend's machine, connect another (healthy) disk to your machine and boot your machine from this CD.
You will have a chance to get almost all the data, but it *might* be that some very long filenames will be renamed to some reasonable shorter version.

dear friend,

If u want to take data u can attach this hard disk with another system.make it secondary master/slave disk by jumper setting.

Now u can get your data untill unless your disk is not physical tamperd.

By this way your another system will show this harddisk in my computer
