recovering data from a crashed hard drive

Specs: Windows XP
My Dell Insperon 1150 crashed. I bought an IDE drive and put the harddrive in it and attempted to boot. I got an I/O error and need to make an MBR. Any advice on the best program to use

The MBR is written to by the operating system installer. Hard drives do not come with Windows already on them, so putting a new hard drive in and having it not boot is perfectly normal. You should use the Recovery disc that came with your computer, if any.
