I think you should try connecting the hard drive to a controller directly and then verify that the computer's BIOS can see the drive correctly. Then boot this computer with some kind of live CD, like Knoppix or such, use network to save files (or another USB drive).

If you added / messed around with your hard disk configuration (ie. added or removed disks) put all of them back exactly how they were.

This has happened to me before. If you add disks to your linux box your bootloader can sometimes get confused.

You may also be able to boot to a live cd and edit your bootloader configuration file.
