Specs: Windows XP
Windows does not pick up my hard drive. I also cannot see the hard drive in the bios setup. What can I use to recover the files on the hard drive.

Chances are you don't have the right settings in your BIOS make sure you disconnect all other drives, set the jumpers on the drive to factory settings and go into the BIOS and set it to Auto Detect.

If the BIOS truely will not pickup the drive then you will need to either get the controller replaced or the platters removed and put into another drive. This requires you to take the drive to a data retrieval company.
