You could clone your drive using software such as Acronis True Image.

Alternatively, if you only wish to backup your data, then you could simply drag-and-drop the files from source to destination.

I assume that the computer is not working so you will have to remove the hard drive and fit it in another computer or fit it to a USB to SATA/IDE converter to another computer and back up your data.
