Someone in my household thought it was smart to encrypt the computer. He used Diskcryptor and we have the correct password.

However, even though he probably did things correctly, after starting the computer it says windows failed to start. So it is not possible to give the password or access my data.

Ive read some things about LiveCD, but I cant seem to understand it.
There is not a liveCD created on the now encrypted computer. Is it possible to still safe the data?
Can I create an boot usb with diskcryptor on a different computer on it to enter the password? How does it work?

The encrypted one is a windows 7pc.
