Hi. I'm from latin america so excuse my bad writing. I'll try to be the clearest I can.

It's about a Hitachi SATA 1TB hard drive.

What happened was that I had my CPU laid on one side and opened. I had the hard drive
laid over the DVD unit compartment because I was trying to fix up another hard drives
and had to be continuously connecting and disconnecting. Then I accidentally hit the CPU
with my foot, lifting it a little and getting hit against the floor, the PC turned off,
then I turned it on again but Windows did not started. So I set BIOS to start with
another hard drive that has Windows too and let the HItachi connected. Like this Windows
initialized very slow. Then I check on " My PC" and Windows did not recognized de
Hitachi hd, I rebooted and checked in BIOS and there the Hitachi was not recognized
neither. I tried in another PC and with other cables and nothing changes.

P.D.:

-When the PC is turn on the Hitachi HD feels to start but past 15 seconds it stops.
(Sometimes, when the PC turns on the Hitcachi starts to beep intermittently, with a 2
seconds interval, it is not a mechanic sound and after every beep it's heard a little
crack from the HD, and the HD remains like this until I turn off the PC. Remeber, this
happens SOMETIMES).

Please guys, help me, so I could repair the drive and recover my data.

Cheers and thanx.

It sounds like you're done with that drive. I guess you will need to use your backups.

Recovery services can almost certainly get the data back, but they can cost into the $1000's.

The hard drive in your computer is in one of two states right now. It's
either going to fail or it already failed. Hard drives are inherently
fragile things with no built in redundancy.
