hard disks not recognized

By xabier.artola ·
I have a problem with an internal hard disk and a USB external disk. After a system crash (blue screen once, very slow start since then) both disks are not recognized by the BIOS, but when connected through an enclosing USB interface the system recognizes them as "not initialized". Using an information recovery software, I have been able to "see" the directory structurein one of these disks, which appears to be not damaged.
The hard disk where the system resides works, but, as I said before, starting is very slow.

Any help? Hardware failure in both disks at the same time? Virus? MBR or partition table damaged? How to proceed (important information to be rescued)?

Thanks in advance,
