Help Me Obiwahn, You're My Only Hope!

So the Computer Death problem of my laptop seems pretty official, but it appears to be something with the OS which means I can hopefully fix it by reinstalling Windows. But I'm left with the dilemma of losing the data I hadn't backed up in the past few months. Yes, I fail. Yes, I know! But most of the stuff that I'd be sad about is already posted online. I'd lose some fanvids which I could re-download and some music, but that's about it. So here's my question for anyone who wants to chime in:

Poll #1506736 Computer Death Question

I have to make a choice. Either:

Re-install Windows and lose everything that I haven't saved in the past few months (this would include the WIPs that I didn't post and future scenes written for TYSK ... :( ) - the majority I have on back-up except the newest stuff.

Try to take it into a professional to do data recovery (which would be expensive, I assume) and then re-install Windows.

Twiddle my thumbs and never make a decision and just use my roomie's laptop til the end of time (end of time = it breaks too).
