Try SIW it gives some passwords SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

If really desperate for retrieving data try a Ubuntu boot and view the drive data from it

Download Ubuntu | Ubuntu create a bootable disk and use the TRY version NOT the install

When open the drives can be seen and opened although some docs will not open then it is just copy / paste to a stick if you so wish.

Anyway have a look at the previews in that site ref first.

Don't forget to set the BIOS to boot from optical first.

Oops sorry thought you had lost one / some.

The Ubuntu too is useful for when Windows crashes totally at least you an get online (FireFox - Google) for drivers etc by just booting and using TRY until you have got what you need.
