    Just because it won't turn on doesn't mean you have lost your photos. Boot of a Live CD like Ubuntu and see if you can still see your files.

    Ive had computers die on me too. If it powers up then the power supply will be ok. If you can take the hard drive out of the computer and put it in an external enclosure youll be able to plug it into the laptop and use a file recovery program if the hard drive isnt completely dead. Ive recovered a bunch of family photos for a friend from a corrupted hard drive using the above method. Just dont format the drive if you want to try and put a new windows on it.

    that error is generally BIOS or cable related. Try removing the HDD and putting it in an external HDD case and connecting it to another PC using USB. You might just be able to get the files back.

    Try searching google for unmountable_boot_volume, cause their is lots of info on this.

    DO NOT format the HDD...yet
