You can try these as an example:
SystemRescueCd download | SourceForge.net
KNOPPIX Linux Live CD
So cool ice cubes are jealous Ľ PCLinuxOS
Ok so I downloaded SystemRescueCD and burn it on the CD-R, what do I do now?

- Start booting with SystemRescueCD
- First screen: select (1) default boot options
- Wait 20 seconds or ENTER to start with US Keyboard (default)
- at root@sysrescdd /root % - startx (ENTER)
- Open emelFM2 - Menu (lower left) - System - emelFM2
- Attach external HDD to backup the files to the PC

The NTFS Windows partitions will not be mounted by default. So we will have to mount them:
- Open Menu (lower left) - System - Show Filesystems
- A new Terminal will open: You can see Disk/Device names. We will use these names to mount the partitions. Note the device name for the partition you want to mount (example sda2).

To Mount the partitions (change sda2 with the device name you wish to mount, windows is how it will show, you can use another name) - in order not to delete files/folders we will open these partitions in read-only format:
- Open terminal (on taskbar)
- run the command: mount -t ntfs /dev/sda2 /mnt/windows -o ro
- now sda2 partition is mounted with the name windows

To actually see the files/folders in sda2 partition:
- Return to emelFM2
- Browse to /mnt/windows

Mount the external backup HDD with read/write support (example device name: sdd1)
- return to terminal
- run the command: ntfs-3g /dev/sdd1 /mnt/backup
- return to emelFM2
- on right pane browse to /mnt/backup

To copy the file/folders (emelFM2):
- On left pane - select the files/folders to be copied
- Right click - Actions - Copy (they will be copied to right pane) - there is also an icon to copy in between the two panes (vertical menu)

When I put the disk inside my computer, it doesn't do anything and my computer still reboots itself over and over again and ignores the disk

Try this:

Keep tapping F12 during POST (BIOS first screen, should tell you which key to press in this screen) - it should get you a Boot Menu - select CD-ROM

If that doesn't work go into BIOS (normally DEL key) and change Boot Order to make CD-ROM be first.

Still doesn't work, do I have to keep trying until it starts showing up something?

It seems you are not getting past POST or fail right after it?

Remove the battery while keeping the power cable attached, try to start like that.

If above fail, read Help my Acer Aspire 5733Z-4851 please!!!!!! - Tech Support Forum
It seems to be the same problem, unfortunately there have been no resolution.
In short:
- remove 1 RAM stick and try with the other, switch around and try again
- remove harddisk and see if you can get into BIOS

It explains how to easily rescue files using the Windows disk in both Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
and Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

The first tutorial will try everything possible to start unbootable Win7, while the second one will assure you get a perfect install which will have no further problems IF you stick with the tools and methods given. Not one of the 1.5 million consumers who have used it have returned with a single problem.

I can't access BIOs, I think dust bunnies are the main problem, I'm going to clean out the fans and stuff in my computer and see if it is.
