Can anyone please advise possible ways to fix this problem, so that I can retrieve data, before replacing the HDD.
Thanks, Brian.

check if your hard drive is seen in the bios

if it is make sure its the 1st bootable device and that you havent left a cd/dvd in the optical drive

if it still wont boot use another pc to get a copy of something like ubuntu live--you can run it without

installing it from a disc or usb drive

as long as your hard drive is actually spinning you can then copy the data off
