My Surface Pro Will Not Boot Up! How to Recover Data?

My Surface Pro 5 will not boot up. I have tried some ways to boot up, like holding down the power button, a combination of holding down the power and volume down buttons, and keeping the device plugged in for 24-48 hours. But they all didn't work. My Surface Pro has already been out of warranty, so I have to pay too much if I turn to Microsoft Support to get it repaired and refurbished. At this point, I don't care if the device works or not, and I just want to recover at least some data from the hard drive. Can anyone help me?

According to your description, you have tried holding down the power button, pressing the key combination to turn on your machine, and recharging your machine. Thus, nothing seems wrong with the hardware on your Surface Pro.
