The hard drive should work fine thats a standard IDE drive.
For the overheating problem you probably just need to clean the fans with a can of compressed air. That series gets clogged pretty easily. Just blow from the bottom of the laptop where you see the fan towards the outlet in the rear.
You can boot from a USB floppy drive to do a bios upgrade - you can get USB floppies for $20 or so.
Or i have loaded a bios from a bootable CD (you can make one from Roxio or Sonic record now if you make a bootable floppy first - get one Here:

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.

open My Computer and you'll see the flah drive listed there, doublke click it to open the drive's window. put this to one side. Open your download location's folder (maybe your desktop) and drag (click, hold, drag, let go) the files you want from the download location to the windows for your flash drive. Papa

Only if that laptop has the option of booting from external drives or media ... some newer computers can do that.
I would just get another CD drive (CD/DVD) for it and replace the hard drive and re-install it.
I don't think I've ever PXE booted either ... besides what's the point of laptop that you have to PXE boot - you can't take your network on the road with you?

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)
1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability
2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer.
3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.
4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.
5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port
6. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.
7. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
8. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.
Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"
Hope this gives you the information you need
