Data Recovery / Windows Start Up Problems

I am trying to recover data on a friends drive, unfortunatly some service repair guy put in a snide( crack copy ) of windows xp professional sp2
, the windows validation online repeatedly pop-ed up with occasional win file as bad image ??, there seems to be a repeated winlog.exe system admin error at start up of windows which cycles around, after a patch was used, (dubious authentification ).
i have tried to use the console recovery and run chkdsk to no avail with this weird thing is in safe mode/ repair from install disk, and trying to run chkdsk, the boot cycle problem returns compounded by the fact that it will
switch the pc off for two minutes when i try to run or open files.
i am having a problem, reading the drive as an external ,i guess i am using the right jumper config for the Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120, from its master setting. Can you recommend a solution ?? .Thanks //

When i try to format my pc it asks me to select a drive and when i click on C:/ it tells me that the drive is damaged and cannot be formatted..whereas it shows me correctly about my othe drives...pls help...

You shouldn't ever format a drive unless you wish to destroy all data. If the drive is damaged, then it may NOT be able to be handled by normal software you may have to run data recovery software, there are many free types on the internet to download. to recover, any data that can be.
Usually C:\ is the Drive where the boot track and Windows, and data like in My Documents is kept, if this is formatted over, it will damage the data on this disc, rendering it useless.
If you wish to recover data you will as said have to find some other way. When all data is removed, or whatever, then the drive could be formatted for re-formatting, and re-installing of Windows.
