How to fix a dead hard drive

The first thing is that in his view, about 85% of the dead drives are due to software, not hardware. This can be fixed with a bunch of tools, mounting in a different OS, using a LiveCD, or simply trying it in a different version of the OS itself. There are tons of tools, ranging from really expensive to free to help you here, try them all if you need to.
