Buy a new hard-drive, install Windows on that. You may be able to get your data from the old drive if you connect it as a secondary in the system, as long as the issue is not too bad.

In the event that the curre3nt hard drive starts to work and you can get into Windows the first thing you need to do is make an image of the OS on another drive so you can save your personal files. Then you could run chkdsk and see what errors it finds and if it could fix them.
If it don't start then you could get another drive and load Windows on it and connect the old drive and try to recover your personal files with a file recovery program.
