Welcome. I can't say I have the best advice but you can start with maybe a live cd. Mount the drives and see the state of the data to begin with. We can't say what is wrong but try to get that data off before you go any farther with any test or fix.

If you can't boot to a live cd then may have to move drive(s) to new system to try to access again. Report back.
