Default cant detect harddisk

my friend hardisk got bad sector, so i ran HDD to repair his hardisk. I let the m/c run whole night...
The next day i woke up, i found that the m/c already hang with some sound from hardisk. It also shown that it found 4k+ bad sector & only managed to repair 200+.
So i terminate the process then restart m/c. After that the bios coudlnt detect the hardisk...
Is there any other way for me to detect & access the hardisk to retrieve some file on the partition ?
