See what it can do with Startup repair (if you have no visible Restore points in normal mode, then I doubt that any more will be available from RE, but you can always try it)
Hit a brick wall, lost all my data
I've literally tried everything, I can't even back my data up everything just displays wrong and gives me no text so I don't know what I'm clicking.

I have a 70GB external HDD was wondering if I boot windows from that will I be able to access my data on main HDD to back them up ?

You should be able to - assuming the disk hasn't died.

Make sure that you disconnect the 'old' drive when installing Windows on the temporary drive - reconnect it afterwards.
