  1. When I try to boot up I get a blue screen and it says an error has occured... blah blah blah... and at the bottom says this:

    stop 0x0000007e (0x80000003,0x805BA6EC,0xF89952B8,0xF8994FB4)

    I don't know much about computers but I have tried booting up through safe mode and it just stops... I just want to get the data off my computer... please help.

    The best way to save your stuff now, is to have the current hard drive removed and set aside. Have another drive installed and a clean Operating System installed AFTER troubleshooting what is causing the BSOD. You most likely have a hardware failure. After the computer is back up and running, install the old hard drive as a slave drive, and recover your files
