Get the hard disk out. Then connect it to another PC via IDE/USB-cable and get the documents off. Couldn't be easier.
My dad gave me his computer to fix. Durring a crazy storm we had his Power Suply blew and burnt out his CPU, MOBO, (1 out of 2) ROM drives, Floppy Disk drive, and possibly his HDD (I hope not). I replaced the MoBo, CPU and one ROM drive. I put the MOBO drivers CD in and booted it up. B4 it wouldn't even boot but now it did, so i know i did something right. BUT it just starts to go to the Window Loading Screen, and a blue screen pops up real fast and then it reboots. I think its the cooling bc stupid me, ordered a mobo and CPU but no heatsink or fan. So i stuck a heatsink and fan from a win95 computer i had sitting around. I know its not working that well. I just need enough time on the computer to get some important documents off. Any advice
