Hello and welcome scubamedic sounds like the hard drive is bad well enough to cause this but ry this to recover data mate
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Set the BIOS to boot from theoptical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL> select TRY
When it is finished - it takes verylittle time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > Userand dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy /paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doingthis.
I am not sure if it will but I haverecovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or justplain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.
Following that then just install anew hard drive and do this
