When you get to the bios screen, does your computer recognize your hard drive? It will be under the setup tab.

Yes, your hard drive should be the Primary Master. If it does not recognize it then most likely your drive has gone bad. Had it been making any noise recently or given any indication it was going out, such as Blue Screen Errors or anything like that?

Yes, it had been making a clicking noise. Is there a way to copy it or at least get some of the stuff out of it?
Thanks so much.

You can take it out of your PC and hook it up as a slave drive in another PC and try to get the data off of it. Before you hook it up place it in the freezer for a while, sometimes getting it good and cold will help get it running long enough to recover some of your data.
