When you say damaged ,how bad, does you computer still reconise it ,if you boot computer with windows bootdisk can you type Dir c:\ at the prompt and see files on drive ,If so you could set the drive to slave and add a new master drive to the computer and copy the data from the damaged disk to the new disk or add it to another computer as the slave drive and copy the data to the master drive through windows explorer.

here's a shortcut to your problem. Most likely your hard disk has several bad sectors so it keeps giving you blue screens and probably won't let the OS finish loading.

You can place the hard disk in another computer as a slave and back-up your data.
