do you think linux will load on it? or will the old windows errors get in the way?

I had a similar issue with Vista, where it refused to do anything. I grabbed a linux live cd off the net and booted up using that. You will be able to see everything that is on your drive and copy the files off if needed. There are also disk utilities which will let you scan the drive. In my case the hard drive was fried and needed to be replaced.

You won't know unless you try it.

Did you disconnect external devices?
