When you say the drive is dead, what errors are you getting?
Is it failing to boot? What is the problem you are having?
Depending of what the issue is, it might be able to be fixed.
To retrieve data from a drive on a computer that wont boot will depend on what is wrong with it. If it is mechanically dead, then you may not get the data except through a data recovery service which is very expensive.
There are a few ways to do this. I wont go into detail till we determin if we can fix it.
1. Slave the drive to another computer.
2. Put the drive in an external case and use USB to another computer.
3. Use a program called puppy linux. This runs entirely from the CD and will allow recovery to a USB device or CD drive.

Look at this post and info on how to use it by Happyrock. You will have to have access to another computer to burn the iso file. Happyrock's instructions are the best I have seen.

heres a link to someone else who has done this. http://www.kingsley-...ard_transpl.php
Reasons why you shouldn't do this though. Depending on how the circuit board is placed. there may be a warranty sticker above one of the screws. If so do NOT do this, as you will void your warranty.
If the circuit board isn't the problem, and you can see there's no burn marks or everything looks right on the board, it might not be the board, it could be the internal parts of the drive, which you do not want to touch, let alone even open up to look at. therefore buying a dummy drive might be a total waste of money.
