Here's how to work around the problem with the screen going blank when the A/C power adapter is attached.
With the battery only connected increase the screen brigtness using the blue Fn (function) key and the up arrow until you start to see the screen flickering. Now use the function key and the down arrow to decrease the screen brightness until the flickering stops. Plug in your A/C adapter and if the screen brigness increases, quickly bring it back down to the level where the screen does not flicker. It should continue run at this reduced brightness level.
You can then go into the the BIOS setup during the boot up sequence by pressing F2 and set this reduced brightness level so that any time you connect the A/C the brightness will automatically be set to the lower setting that avoids the problem.

You need to cheat a little. First try to boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key as soon as you hit the power (and keeping your fingers crossed on the other hand that it notices your doing this). Before you get too depressed just try booting into safe mode and then reboot normally. That may be all it take to fix it. Try this a few times before getting into the more serious fixes.
If you can get into safe mode you can simply copy your files off to a usb data drive. Those will still work. You may be able to use the wired network card if you select safe mode with network access. But don't count on that. The cd/dvd will not work so you can't burn it to disk. A flash drive will work on the usb while a external hard drive that connect via usb usually won't as it needs drivers.
The other way is to boot using a bootable cd. If you can get a vista install cd you can install over the top of your existing windows and retain your settings. If you don't know where everything is then you need to be a bit creative and use something like the demo Ubuntu cd that boots into a windows like operating system that will allow you to copy stuff over the network to the usb drive or the network.
If you have a friend with the right laptop or desktop you can take the drive out and set it up as a second drive. When they boot normally they then can see your drive and just copy burn or move your stuff. This is what I do in the shop when the existing system is too messed up to work with. There may be the odd thing you won't get access to but you should get most of it.
