I'm sorry, typo error. Should be " the motherboard can't even read the HDD, how to recover?".

Many thanks again.
Sometimes the MBR get stuffed due to what is called a delayed write error. If this happens then you cannot see the drive/disk at all. I've had it happen several times. As long as your drive isn't physically damaged (no noise other than what is normal) and still spins up you can set it as a secondary drive and download the following little freeware program. It works like a charm. I've been using it for about 2 years and it works perfectly it's also simple to use.

PCInspector File Recovery

Like I said, try the free method first unless the HDD is physically crashed.

I think Easeus DataRecoveryWizard is a great program on recover lost data. This utilities never failed me before so I can rely on it. Its algorithm is powerful indeed.
