Start with admin tools, computer management, storage, disk management and see if what it says about the drive/partition.

Watch the POST screens at start up to verify that the BIOS is properly identifying the drive by both the model number, and the FULL capacity.

If it isn't then your BIOS is NOT 48 bit LBA compliant. That means your BIOS can't properly use any hard drive larger than 137GB.

Another problem can be if you have re-install WinXP and used a CD that doesn't have any service packs integrated into it.

Post back with those results.

I don't think a software will do much to you.Usually, when a Broken HDD has logical problems they tend to lose data and stop functioning. Using softwares may give you data's back but fails to repair the error. No matter its your SSD or HDD ignoring logical errors and using softwares for data recovery might kill your drive.

Thus, its better to consult data recovery experts.
