You can buy Hard drive enclosures to put the HD in and do it yourself- it will most likely set you back $50-$100, for what you're looking for.
however, this is assuming your PC can actually still detect and read the disk. Check your BIOS- does it still show up there? if it does, you may have a chance. If it doesn't, or if this message is being displayed BIOS side and won;t let you boot at all- sorry, the disk is dead. You can probably find a good hard drive recovery company (sorry, I can't reccommend any, as i've never looked into it myself), however, there are some things even they can't do, and their rates are usually pretty pricey. (several hundred dollars, usually.).

There should be no cost if you conect your new hardrive like slave on your motherboard and then transfer the data from your present to your new HD

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this will help
