Download the Macrium WinPE .iso from here. Burn that to a CD - e.g. with ImgBurn. Then boot with that CD and make an image of the C partition to an external drive.

Now attach the external drive to another PC. Double click on the image file and mout it. Now you can open it in Computer and retrieve/copy your files.

Another option is to use a live Linux CD as Golden has pointed out. This is another Linux option: Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer
