See if the boot sequence in the BIOS is going to let you read this drive.  Maybe check the drive to see if it is, or can be, set to a slave drive.

What is the exception code on BSOD screen?
Does it crash when yountry to open the drive in Windows Explorer?

Turn on Disable Automatic Restart After System Failure and see what BSOD you are getting.  This will give us more information.  Unfortunately, it sounds like the circuit board on the HDD has gone bad.

disk have errors on it.  put it in an enclosure and attached it to the computer via usb, you will be able to pull your data off that way.

Try this:  Boot the computer, then put the problematic drive in the docking station.  What happens then?

What happens if you try the same with a known good drive?

So I boot the PC then I put the drive in the doc and it to blue screens then restart then continue to do the same thing until I unhook the USB from the computer. When I try the same thing with a different drive it works fine.

Conclusion:  The drive has failing electronics and there is nothing you can do except send it off for data recovery unless you have an exact match and the skill to switch out the electronics.
