OK if the system doesnt even work to where you can even get the screen on then you have some bad hardware. That means you will need to take the hard drive out and plug it into another system as a secondary drive.

Then boot into that computers OS and the drive should show up and then you can grab the files off of it. OR plug the drive into another system and boot into ubuntu as well :-)
