I'm not sure if they charge or not, but your best bet would be to contact emachines

You can move any data files...from the hard drive...by attaching it to another system as a secondary drive temporarily...and moving your files before you attempt any repair/restore effort.

Apart from what hamluis suggested, you could also try running a linux-based LiveCD on your system, to try accessing your hard disk.
Remember to set the CD Drive as the primary device in the boot sequence (BIOS) first.
