How to Bypass Windows Resume Loader at startup

My battery died and my computer always freezes at the "Windows Resume Loader" I have no way to bypass this god da** screen. If I can't get past this, how the hell will I retrieve my files? I don't want to lose everything.

Thanks to anybody who can help me.

First plug in the mians lead.
Press the F8 key repeatedly at boot up or use the Startup disk.

Try this:
Safe Mode
Startup Repair
Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

System Repair Disc - Create
System Recovery Options
System Restore

If you have a External HD, you could copy & paste your data.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

F8 might work if I could press the button, but my computer doesn't recognize the keyboard. And USB ports don't work on it so I've been stuck using the onscreen keyboard.

If you have a PS2 port, try a PS2 keyboard.

Thanks theog, this PS/2 keyboard worked, but now I cannot get rid of the driver to disable it. Have tried any posts I could find. Says that the driver has a "signature.
Again thanks.

Use another computer. Download rescue disk, it's a linux disk image with all kinds of repair ability and file recovery stuff, but you don't need that. Burn it to a USB stick or a CD. Boot your PC with it and just transfer the files to another disk drive, USB stick, Drop box, whatever. Good to go. You computer won't boot into win 7, but you don't need it to boot to read the disk. Actually for this any Linux distribution with a CD or USB stick mountable preview distribution will work fine.

Once you've saved your important files, you can do a recovery and reinstall your apps and then put your files, movies, images, music etc back.
