Failure my hard disc how to take the lose data have any solution?

Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard driveadapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computerdetects it as an external storage device and you can open the various foldersand files then back up your data.
If not you are in trouble, there are companies that can recover data fromfaulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My Dell Optiplex 745 "No Boot Device Available"

No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.

Can u help me as im havin trouble with loadin up my pc all i get is the safe mode options screen all time

OK, we have Windows XP and we cannot boot to the Desktop in Normal, Safe or last known good configuration.

You definitely have a windows OS issue, and you may have a hard drive problem.

If you post the Brand and Model of the system, that would help us to be able to give better info on running a diagnostic on the Hard Drive.

Many brands have an option for diagnostics on the F8 or F12 menus. See if you can run a hard drive diagnostic. It the hard drive fails diags, then you'll need to replace the drive. If it passes diagnostics, then try booting to the XP CD, entering recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
