Give it a rest for a day or so, then come back to it. If it keeps having issues, you might want to purchase a SATA/IDE to USB connector and hook your hard drive up to another computer and copy the data off that way.

You will need to boot using your USB. Change the boot order in your bios to look for a USB device to boot with instead of the HD.

Is your USB drive bootable? You cant just copy a Windows 7 disk or .iso file to a USB. Read this for instructions. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2432-usb-windows-7-installation-key-drive-create.html

Let Windows format and install on your hard drive.
I think i have t buy a new hard disk cuz it wont even open in safe mode now. Im doomed lol. Tks for the help..

Since it won't boot, you can also use a Linux Live CD to browse and transfer you files from the drive:
