Blue Screen of Death

Hello,

I use XP and it has completely crashed this time and I can not restart in safe mode or any mode for that matter. The Geek Squad says my hard drive will not even turn, so it looks like I probably should just get a new laptop since this one afterall is 5 years old.... Is there a way for me to get all my information off my harddrive myself, the geek squad said it had to be sent in to a place where everything is done in a dark room but I did not know if that was the case or not. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

GE
