What's on the cd that came with the ssd ?
If it's not a bootable cd and you can't start Windows I don't see how it could help.

Are you sure the SSD is a bootable device in BIOS and prioritized before the HD ?

You might try using a bootable Partition Wizard CD to see what is on the SSD.

Makea bootable Ubuntu disk

Setthe BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you ascreen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY

Whenit is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in thepic .

Openthe drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settingsyou may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source orother installed drive doing this.

Iam not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this methodboth on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data fromusing Windows.
