As far as I remember on the XP disc, to repair, you are supposed to hit "R". Recovery is what you need to do if something is missing. Did it with a virus infested system that took out a boot file. Worked fine after I did the recovery. Sounds like the drive is dead though.

so if i tried it with my samsung laptop battery, ehich is this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LAPTOP-BATTERY...em120242673567

it could work. so what i would need to do is:

1. Discharge battery fully
2. freeze for how long...?
3. Fully charge back up
4. Repeat and rinse for how many times...?

edit: at the moment my battery has lost over half of it charge within 25 mins

ok i know that this may or may not work, but have you tried putting the dead hhd set up as a slave drive, and seeing if windows detects it ??

if so, then just reformat it after you retrive the files from it.... just a thought.
