Why don't you start with steps, I provided in my previous replies, and we'll go from there.
Guessing is anybody's game.

I heard that retrieving datas from a dead harddrive could cost from $50 to $2500 if you go to a repair shop, is this true?

Unless you really know what your doing it is impossible to retrieve data from a dead HD. That is why OnTrack charges around $2000-2500 to recover data from a dead drive. And that is why i backup all my data at least once a month and sooner if i have bought software online or music i do not want to lose.

If you cannot stick your drive in another computer and see the data on the drive, or even have the computer recognize the drive then it is DEAD. I have tried this with one HD that crashed the computer every time i started it until i disconnected the drive.

The black chrome finish on the drive disks i have opened up are quite pretty. The magnets are quite powerful also.
