There is one last-ditch and definitely not guaranteed approach you could try. Remove the drive, seal it in a poly bag and stick it at the bottom of your deep freeze for at least 24 hours. Then take it out, plug it straight into the machine (don't even bother with the screws) and boot up at once. If it comes up, be ready to copy off everything you can get right then and there, because you're on borrowed time!
