The only solution I can think of is to run a bootable live linux cd like ubuntuu and then try accessing your hard drive from in there. Files can be saved to another usb device like a usb key. May be too late though depending on how bad the hard drive is

Boot priority order


if you are wondering how to change the boot priority order, you need to get into the BIOS. To do this you need to restart your computer and during the first few seconds of boot up, before the logo for your computer comes up, you need to press one the of function keys. Depending on the make of your computer it can range from f2 to f8. If you look carefully, on the bottom of the screen during boot up it should say something like "for setup press f2" or something. Or you can google the make of your computer and BIOS to find out which key. Once there its just like a settings screen and there should be an options for boot priority. You can usually change it from hard drive to external or optical. Hope this helps.

it's probably an error with your harddisk
i suggest you to go to the BIOS setting by pressing F2 or del while on POST (exactly after you press the power button and the monitor is on)
then look for something like "boot device priority" (usually it's placed on advanced settings)
then set the 1st boot device as your harddisk. save&exit,restart
if it still happens,just comment this solution,i'll give you another solution
