My friends computer wouldn't boot up so he asked to me to take a look at it. I quickly noticed that the (well aged) hard drive was making a real bad grinding noise. I plugged the hard drive into another computer (and didn't boot off the faulty hard drive), and it would show up in BIOS but wouldn't show up in Windows. There was no added device in Device Manager (under disk drives or unknown devices). I'm thinking that the gears inside the hard drive are gone and it won't spin up. My friends didn't backup their hard drive, so I was hoping I could get some of their information off the hard drive. Is there any chance of getting anything off this (dead) hard drive? If so, how?
