What does the bluescreen say?? Whats the stop error, and does it show the name of a file / driver? Remove the hard drive, put it in a working system. Remember to jumper it if you connect it to something that uses IDE. You can only copy documents / contacts / photos etc (not programs)

Yes or maybe. Or not.

Have you checked the hardrives and how many does she have? Or are you talking about partitons and drives within?

Desktop or Laptop or other?

Operating system?

Is there a working optical drive?

Yes, though some files may be damaged depending on the specific fault(s) with the machine.
