When Windows starts up, a number of programs will start automatically. Most of them don't need to start but they do. The more programs that start up, the longer your computer will take to load everything.
The first thing to do is to get rid of all the junk in your computer. Uninstall any program you no longer want.
Clearout all your old temporary internet files.
Do a registry and adware clean.
Get rid of old documents and files, anything you do not need.
To see the programs that start when you boot up:
When the window opens Click Startup
You will see a vast number of programs that your computer loads each time you boot. You can uncheck a lot of them. Do a google search for startup programs before you uncheck anything. There are some good guides that will tell you what to allow to start and what you don't need. Note any unchecked program will not be deleted or uninstalled and will still work when you want them. You will need to restart your computer if you make any changes in msconfig
I would also suggest you defrag your hard drive.
Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-Syatem Tools-Defragmenter
Follow the instructions.
Do not rule out the possibility that you have a virus or some other spyware program running in the background which slows things down. Check these out too.

if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.

if the board is fried, you can take the platters (discs) out and put in another HD of same make and model to recover data. Will require special tools and patience. Its the only way I know to recover data from a blown HD. PS, use vinyl gloves as to not leave finger prints. and do this in the cleanest area you can find! Im not sure how you managed to reverse the polarity... hope this helps...
