What kind of hard drive?
What was done to it?
What has happened that you need to get info off?
Does it work?

Come on now, as a member since 2005 and as many post as you have, surely you know we need some more details than that.

Than without knowing more. I'd suggest slaving it to another PC and pulling data off that way.

ya just make sure the jumpers are in for slave and you should be able to just boot it as a slave and take the files off. Also maybe try reinstalling windows once the files are off.
