Is the hard drive seen ?
Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives
There are also Data Recovery programs that might be very helpful to recover your important information.
Some addition links found on Google
hope this helps

this may vary depending on your operating system
run the chkdsk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recovery any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive there are many ways of running the chkdsk utility
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors then select check now
start should schedule this task when restart if this is the hard drive with your operating system on it
i have found the best results ticking one box and wait until its finished then return and tick the other box
do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
hope this helps you

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 they could be 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 electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
