option 1 - buy a USB to Sata/IDE adpater - you can get them for over $10
then remove the hard drive with the BSOD and connect to it
then you can connect to a good windows pc and you should be able to copy the files you need/want
your should be able to burn the files to a dvd/cd
option 2 - down load a live Linux OS like Ubuntu or Mint Linux
you will have to burn it to a DVD - you will not be able to burn it to a CD (sorry) to much data on it.
then boot to the DVD on on the pc with the BSOD. you might have to boot into the BIOS to set the
boot order for it to boot to the the DVD
then boot the pc into the live Linux OS
once the system is up and running, click the Menu and select Computer.
in the file manager look for your hard drive, then you can look for your file there,
once you have found them you can copy them to a dvd/cd or a memory stick
my daughter pc would not boot into windows, I had to buy a new hard drive for her and install windows (Vista) on it.
I was able to copy her files to the new hard drive. I spend over 8 hours setup windows and setup her pc with all her programs that she had on it. then fours days later her pc stopped working again - so had over 8 hours rebuilding her pc .
check the system and it stated I had 3 days to activate windows - had to catch Microsoft for that
had to install anti-virus, adobe reader, java, flasher player, windows cleaning tools (3 different one), all windows updates, etc.
oh what fun it is (MS Windows) - that why I use Mint Linux on my pc
I can rebuild or update a new version in less than 2 hours and working again and a whole lot safer on the internet
