If you can remove the hard drive & hook it up to another computer you can resuce his personal files.
You can't save any installed programs though.
If the hard drive is SATA you should be able to put it in a computer & get the files off of it easily.
If it is a IDE drive you would need a adapter to hook it up in a desktop .
You could also check on the availability of a external USB enclosure that the drive will fit in.
