recover data from a damaged hd

The error was Invalid partition boot sector.
I conected the hd to another computer and saw the system file and saved some files but with crashes.
Trying again and again i get to the point when says the disk is not formatted.
So, please tell me that there is a way of saving data in this situation.
 The disk is phisically damaged on a HPVectra machine with windows2000 installed.

A disk image would definitely be a good idea.

and if all else fails, put the disk drive in a sealed plastic bag into the deep freeze for more than 1 hour, and try again. In many cases, the drive works again for some time (hopefully long enough to get your data off)
