- HD makes weird noise and pc doesn't boot

Well, I have this Maxtor HD and I wonder if it's lost, along with
all the important data I have on it.
So here's what happens; on boot up, the disk seems
to activate. Then I hear this weird noise, something
sounding like "STACK!", and my pc won't boot up.
I've tried to put my HD in another computer as a slave HD, but
it isn't recognized; with the HD in slave mode, the PC
boots but access to filesystem is unbelievably slow
and still the filesystem won't see the drive at all.
In both cases, I cannot hear the classic "frying pan" noise.
Do you think my data is forever gone? Is there something
I can do/test before considering a data rescue by professionals?
