Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook ?

Lock up at black screen after dell screen

\015 I have a Inspiron 1545 notebook with a mk2555gsx 250gig hard drive running Windows XP. I turn it on and it has the initial screen then locks at black. unfortunately this problem was caused by me dropping the laptop while it was on. I got it to do a pre-boot self test and it came up with Hard drive 0 failure, error code 2000-0142 at status 70. I am just trying to find out if it is recoverable, and if so how. I have a lot of info on it that is quite valuable to me personally, so if i can't get it to work in the computer, is there a way to recover the data. primarily I would of course like to get the computer operational again. thanks for your time.\015
