Answers :

Hi, if the hd is not faulty, you can take it out and use a usb adapter to connect it to another computer and get the data out.

anyway , try to unplug the computer and take out the battery, wait a few minutes, and put the battery back and plug the computer, see if it works.
There are various utilities which could help you recover data from your hard drive. If you are not comfortable using these utilities, please contact a professional data recovery technician.

\015\012There are multiple things that could be wrong with your machine, not just hard drive. Your power supply could have gone bad (Usually the cause of such problems). It could also be the motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012Are you getting some beeps when you try to start the computer? If yes, the count of beeps can help you identify the exact cause of the issue.
