You can hook the drive up as a slave to see if you can read it.

First I would boot from the Ultimate Boot CD and test the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic utility.

If the drive is healthy I'd then boot from a Knoppix DVD to recover any data.

Or I'd connect it to a working PC via a IDE/SATA to USB 2.0 adaper.

If its defective I'd connect it to a working PC via a USB 2.0 adapter then run a program like GetDataBack NTFS to scan it for recoverable files.
