Windows 7: BSOD flashes for a second then crashes on startup after switching HDD

BSOD flashes for a second then crashes on startup after switching HDD

Ok so I have 2 laptops, the one mentioned here Supervirus and a new one. I was trying to see if swapping the hard drives would fix it, but it didn't. So I swapped them back and when I tried to turn on the new working computer I keep getting a BSOD flash for a split second before it crashes the laptop. I have many many important photos and school papers etc on it and I want to recover them ASAP. But I can't even log into the laptop because it will show the loading windows 7 animation for a few seconds, freeze, and do the BSOD then crash. I have a computer that I can use to burn any cd's or flash drives or w/e but I need to get those documents off the laptop. When I tried to do system restore the first time didn't work and gave me an error code. The second time it worked but when I tried to boot up the same thing happened. Please help

swapping hard drives from one computer to another will 99% of the time never work. Drivers can cause all sorts of compatibility issue.

can you boot into safe mode? (hammering F8 normally works) you can at least rescue your pictures that way, or plug it directly into a pc using a sata cable and a serial psu cable (take them both from the dvd drive will be fine)
