Hard drive corruption: freezing at check disk

Hello,

My 160 GB Maxtor SATA drive, running Windows XP Pro, went corrupt or something. There is information that I need from it, so I installed another small harddrive and tossed windows on it. I am trying to slave the SATA and see whats on there, but it halts at boot up on the check disk screen. It says:

"One of the disks needs to be checked for consistency."

It finds several errors and then does nothing, as if frozen. If I choose to cancel the disk check, windows does not boot and just hangs on a black screen.

Any help will be appreciated.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
