I have my hard disk that got fried. I have one from a used peripherals shop thats matching my laptop (mine can only take upto 20GB) but it lacks any label on it because of which I dont know the RPM,date of manufacture or even the serial number (which can also tell me the date of manufacture and other details from the manufacturers website)
I was wondering if its possible to know the details like speed in RPM,serial number, manufacture date using any details to read from the harddisk (that is if all the details are also coded into the disk).
Is that possible ?

If you have the disk in your hand and have no label, there is not much you can do. Up untill recent years all laptop HD ran at 5600rpm. I believe they are now available in 7200rpm.

If the disk is installed, then you can install Everest (link in my signature) and it will give you all sorts of info. I believe if you get a adapter cable (2.5 to 3.5) you can hang it from a desktop and it will also be seen by Everest. Cables are available.
