Get a SATA/IDE to USB converter, an HDD dock or an HDD enclosure. Install the faulty HDD in the coverter/dock/enclosure and connect to the computer's USB port after Windows has started. Try borrow a dock/enclosure from a friend to save money. Once the HDD is at least being detected by Windows, you'll have to find some data recovery software. Maybe this will help http://www.tomsguide.com/us/pictures-story/332-free-data-recovery-backup-restore.html
